San Francisco Folsom Street Fair

This uniquely San Francisco event returned for its 24th 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.

The 2007 gallery is still being compiled but feel free to check out the 2006 gallery here.
