  3. Folsom Street Fair



The people of San Francisco take to the streets in late September to celebrate the BDSM lifestyle. Music, food and kinky sex are on the minds of the many native San Franciscans who come out to this colorful street fair in SoMa. Vendors sell food, as well as a wide range of items from ethnic jewelry and souvenirs to implements of pain. Of special interest are the many people who dress in leather costumes, which are sometimes shockingly skimpy, to celebrate the fair, which takes place on Folsom Street between Fifth and Eighth Streets. The event is free and some vendors may accept credit cards. Donations are greatly appreciated by the various community and health organizations that sponsor the spectacle.
