Folsom Street Fair is a San Francisco Event that attracts alternative lifestyle enthusiasts from around the country.
If you happen to be in San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood on the 25th of September don’t be alarmed. All those people dressed in leather BDSM gear are supposed to be there. It’s just the Folsom Street Fair - Earth’s biggest celebration of the leather and BDSM subculture.
Now in its 32nd year, Folsom paved the way for festivals of its kind in New York City, Europe and Canada, although as of 2008, the Toronto event is no longer held. The San Francisco Event attracts thousands of people from all over creation who take over Folsom Street for the day. On top of the gaiety of the occasion, on exhibit will be the state-of-the-art in BDSM devices and the latest in leather culture.
Within this day of fetish recognition are happenings like the Bay of Pigs where fanatics from the buff to bears can mix and mingle to House and Electronic music spun by Wayne G. and D.J. Phillip Grasso.
