Castro Street Fair!
Created by Harvey Milk in 1974, this annual festival celebrates the Castro District community with a day of eclectic fun. Held the first Sunday in October, the fair features live entertainment, original work by local artists, dance performances and more.
Street fairs and festivals happen almost every weekend in San Francisco, from April to October, culminating with the always crazy Castro Street Fair. The local neighborhood known as “The Happiest Place in San Francisco” is set to celebrate on the first Sunday of October and if it’s anything like past years, it’s going to shine bright.
Celebrate with friends in the SF sunshine at four fabulous entertainment areas: the Dance Alley, the Sundance Saloon, the Main Stage, and the newest, lovely Castro Street Stage. Check out hundreds of local and artisan vendors, snag tasty food and beverages, and the visit the friendly Castro businesses. See below for the complete list of entertainment.
Those that make a small $5-$10 donation at the gate receive $1 discounts on adult beverages and funds go toward keeping the fair up and running, as well as toward supporting many local nonprofits. Additionally, the fair funds help to maintain the iconic rainbow flag that flies over the intersection of Castro and Market.

San Francisco is split into several areas but the main 2 are The Castro and Soma, with Soma being the area the where you will find Folsom Street, and most of the leather and fetish bars.

Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
