In 2014 the world's largest leather event, the Folsom Street Fair®, will take place on Sunday, September 21, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. We are sure to see the fairgrounds filled with people in their most outrageous leather/rubber/fetish attire enjoying the world's largest and best loved Leather fair.

The Folsom Street Fair is a true San Francisco original. With over 400,000 people in attendance covering 13 city blocks, the Fair is the largest leather/fetish event in the world and the third largest, single-day outdoor event in California. Folsom Street Events is thrilled to celebrate the 31st Folsom Street Fair with style and a week's worth of truly outstanding events and programs over the course of San Francisco Leather Week.

Best of the Bay 2008 Best of Bay 2008 - Best Street Fair -- "More cock than a chicken fight! More ass than a donkey show! Break out those chaps and grab some lube when the sprawling granddaddy of leather events hits in September". - SF Bay Guardian - July 30, 2008

Best of the Bay 2007 Best of the Bay 2007 - Readers' Poll: Best Street Fair -- "A gathering of leather, rubber, latex, and steel - elsewhere this might sound like an upholsterers' convention, but San Franciscans are just a wee bit more creative with their hardware. Trussed, gagged, or branded, the Folsom Street Fair invites you to think outside the sex box. Unless confinement is your thing, of course". - SF Bay Guardian

Best of the Bay 2006 Best of the Bay 2006 - Readers' Poll: Best Street Fair -- "If you have the burning desire to strut your stuff in those ass-out pants your cousin bought you last Christmas, but you don't want to call too much attention to yourself, just wait for the Folsom Street Fair. The other 399,000 bondage and leather fans will make you feel right at home". - SF Bay Guardian

Best of the Bay 2005 Best of the Bay 2005 - Readers' Poll: Best Street Fair -- "How often do you get to break out the fetish gear and parade down the street? (Actually, in San Francisco the answer turns out to be "quite often"). The Bay Area's best street party, the Folsom Street Fair brings out beautiful freaks of all stripes to dance, drink, eat, and generally get down under the SoMa sun. Coincidentally, it's also the culmination of San Francisco Leather Pride Week. Go figure. Sept. 25, 2005". - SF Bay Guardian

2000 Editors' Winner --

Throw on your leather hotpants and join 300,000 other lookers in a fetish frenzy. "Please Sir, May I Have Another? This sexy S&M street-bacchanal celebrates a leather-phile culture that is as big on community service as it is on naughty fun. Keep in mind that this is no small community; the fair is officially listed as the third largest in California (behind the Rose Bowl and San Francisco Pride). Several hundred thousand kinky beasts come out annually to put the fete back in fetish, and though you'll see more tourists with cameras than trussed-up hussies, it's all good, charitable fun. Beneficiaries of the fair include Project Inform, the Stop AIDS Project, Project Open Hand, and New Leaf."
