Hey Boys, Robbie your editor here! I am not going to Folsom Street Fair this year 🙁 I did go to the Montreal fetish festival though. Honestly, I love this sorta thing. Even if you’re not turned on by all the kinks, the theatrics are a lot of fun and it’s shocking how friendly everyone can be!
It’s back! Folsom Street Fair returns to the streets of San Francisco on September 21, with clear skies and mild temperatures in the forecast.
This year’s Folsom Street Fair will shift the action over a block, on Folsom from 8th to 13th streets. The leather and kink event will still take over 13 city blocks and is expected to attract over 400,000 people. There are things to do at Folsom Street Fair besides getting spanked in public and dancing in lederhosen. Out musician Rod Thomas, who performs as Bright Light Bright Light, headlines the main stage at 2:30 p.m. Musicians begin taking to the stage at 11 a.m., including the day’s first performance, with Zbornak. There’s also a “Deviance Dance District” and a “Magnitude Dance Area,” featuring DJs like Paul Goodyear and Tracy Young.
On the artist’s stage, get ready for a performance from Kinky Kabaret, featuring Lusty Lola & Spunk Brewster. A surprise to many, Folsom also includes “Venus’ Playground,” an exclusive area for women and those who identify as genderqueer.
Of course, there’s the exhibitor booths, with everyone from Steamworks baths, Mr. S Leather, Kink.com, and Ms. Martha’s Corset Shoppe represented. There are also plenty of S.F. events leading up to Sunday’s fair; click here to find out what’s what.
