The 2013 Up Your Alley fair
took place on Dore Alley on
Sunday, July 28, 2013.
See you again next year on
Sunday, July 27, 2014.
Up Your Alley® is an unrivaled fetish fair, always on the last
weekend of July in San Francisco. It's only for real players - and
not for the faint of heart. There are sweaty athletes in full kit,
motorcycle studs, hairy chested muscle men, spit-in-your-face punks,
and leather daddies galore. You won't find a filthier event here in
the States. If you're into it, there's a scene for you at Up Your Alley.
With over 10,000 sexy leathermen, you're sure to find your match.
Located in front of the legendary Powerhouse bar, leather and fetish
enthusiasts engage in serious BDSM play - right on the street! The
fair features over 50 vendor booths, hot food and cold stiff drinks,
boot black stations, and a dance area with the hottest San Francisco
DJs located at the intersection of 10th and Folsom. Check out
this only-in-San Francisco event that attracts your most
self-indulgent band of brothers.
In order to accomodate the newly enacted SF nudity ordinance, from
which the UYA fairgrounds is exempt, coat check will be available on 10th
Street between the food court and Folsom St.

Best of Bay 2009 - Editors Picks: Best Fair that's Up Yours
"While the Folsom Street Fair has grown into an international destination
for kinksters and the tourists who ogle them, the Up Your Alley Fair
has become increasingly important as a more intimate oasis for local
leatherheads who remember the scene's old days. The fair — better
known as Dore Alley Fair, though the event was named when it started in
1985 on a different street — has brought much-needed attention to the
oft-overlooked SoMa neighborhood. We love the organization's dedication
to supporting groups and charities like the Episcopal Community
Services, AIDS Emergency Fund, and Transgender Law Center. What we
don't love is that this event may be the next target on the Police
Department's Death of Fun Crusade. Show your support this year so that
Up Your Alley doesn't go the way of Castro Halloween."

Up Your Alley Fair a Great Warm-Up for Folsom
-- San Francisco
by Sister Dana Van Iquity - August 3, 2000
The hot weather last Sunday brought out the hot men and women leather
enthusiasts for what is affectionately known as "Up Your Alley,"
produced annually by the Folsom Street Events board of directors. Most every one of
the attendees gave a couple of bucks for charity at the donation gates
as Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and other volunteers applied a little
old-fashioned Bondage & Discipline and shook down the leatherfolk
for cash all going to charity. And how lovely to see a master taking
his human dog out for a walk, securely leashed and muzzled, crawling across
the pavement and sniffing crotches along the way. Heel!
