San Francisco Folsom Street Fair

This uniquely San Francisco event returned for its 23rd year. People from all over the world attend this fair and this is not your typical street fair. The Folsom Street Fair focuses primarily on the leather and BDSM fetish community. Although it has its roots in the San Francisco gay community, the event has become more mainstream over the years drawing attendance from a wide cross section of the San Francisco community. The dominant theme is still leather and corsets but you never know what you’re going to see here. It’s not for the easily squeamish or the ultra conservative but if you go with an open mind, you may enjoy the wide variety of interesting costumes and toys for the bedroom.

Corsets are always popular and this one comes equiped with its own shield.
The Janus spanking booth is always a big crowd draw.
It’s not all about alternative looks. This is about as All American as they come.
