You might be surprised by the scale of the Folsom Street Fair. Annually around 250,000 leather and BDSM lovers gather here to share and live their weirdest fantasies. The fair features around 200 booths selling all sorts of fetish toys and tools, various stages with both music (from electronic and indie to alternative) and erotic performances, a dance area, and a public playground.

There are no restrictions or rules concerning the visitor's and participant's appearance so be prepared to see anything from people in weird costumes (like giant babies) to naked (and we mean really naked) people.

Folsom Street Fair organizers donations of $10 or more at the gates and provide a discount of $2 for each drink bought at the fair. What a great way to collection donations and keep the spirit up!

The event takes place on the historic Folsom street, from 8th to 13th Streets on South of Market district of San Francisco.
