A fun fetish fair in the Sun – San Francisco Style!
The Up Your Alley Fair, most commonly referred to by locals as Dore Alley Fair or simply Dore Alley. This is a leather and fetish event held in San Francisco, California on the last Sunday of July on Folsom Street between 9th and 10th Streets and on Dore Street from Howard Street to half a block southeast of Folsom Street. The streets are lined with vendors’ booths, and a sound stage (for dancing) is located at the 10th Street end of Folsom Street.
On Dore Alley between Howard and Folsom, continuing on Folsom from 9th to Juniper and the adjoining block of 10th St. San Francisco, CA
Dont Miss the Official Friday and Saturday Night Dance Events, Hog Wild on Friday and The Bay of Pigs on Saturday Night.
Up Your Alley® is only for real players – and not for the faint of heart – where leather daddies rule the streets of San Francisco’s South of Market district. Of course, if rubber, sportswear, biker gear, skinheads, punks, or any variety of built, hairy men turns you on, then we’ve got it. You won’t find a filthier event in the States. If you’re into it, there’s a scene for you. So, don’t get left out.
Located in front of the legendary Powerhouse bar, nearly 15,000 fellow leather men and fetish enthusiasts engage in BDSM play at over 50 adult vendor spaces! Spanking, punching, whips and floggers, bondage, domination and submission, creative water-sports, toys and so much more are in full effect.
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
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
