Awaiting Dates for 2021
San Francisco Leather Walk 2021
San Francisco’s Leather Walk is one of the most diverse marches in the city and mixes a party atmosphere with an important charity raising event, while promoting the leather community and all its attractions.
The annual Leather Walk takes place on every year in September. On-site registration and check in begins at 10:00am at 440 Castro. Each marcher received a collectable Leather Walk pin. While you’re waiting for the action to get started, grab some breakfast at The Cove on Castro, San Francisco’s favourite local diner.
Entertainment starts at 11:30am at Jane Warner Plaza. The walk itself plans to start moving at 12:00pm from the front of Castro Theatre. The walk features performances by some of San Francisco’s most amazing vocal and drag talent. The Leather Walk will include the following stops stops:
Stop 1: SF Oasis
Stop 2: Powerhouse
Stop 3: Mr-S-Leather
Stop 5: The Lone Star Saloon
Stop 6: SF Eagle Final Stop- Flag Raising and Beer Bust
Folsom Street Events presents Leather Walk as the official kick-off for San Francisco’s Leather Week which culminates one week later at the Folsom Street Fair. People walk together to celebrate leather, kink, family and community — all while raising funds for three great agencies.
Each year, hundreds of Leather Walkers take over Market Street and march from the Castro to SoMa. The route includes stops at some of San Francisco’s favourite watering holes, ending with the raising of the Leather Pride Flag at the SF Eagle. Each host venue will showcase some amazing entertainment.
Leather Walk was founded in 1992 by Art Tomaszewski, former AEF Board President, Bare Chest Calendar Man and former Mr. Headquarters Leather.
Art was inspired to start an event that would raise visibility, comradery and funds for AEF. In 2001, Sandy ‘Mama’ Reinhardt, a tireless community fundraiser and founding advisor at BCEF, took over event production of Leather Walk. Each year, Mama and Mama’s Family hold Leather Walk fundraisers across the country. Today, Leather Walk raises vital funds for Folsom Street Events and Positive Resource Center.
The Leather community in San Francisco is quite diverse. The city has a the Leather and LGBTQ District in part of the city’s South of Market neighbourhood.
The neighbourhood remains home to gay and kink bars and the popular Folsom Street Fair, which draws thousands of people every year to celebrate leather sexuality.
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. With there being so many gay bars we have had to put 2 maps in and have found hotels for each area that have good reviews,

In the CASTRO, we recommend, Beck’s Motor Lodge,
