When is the Castro Street Fair?

The Castro Street Fair is on Sunday, October 6th, 2013 from 11AM to 6PM.

Where is the Castro Street Fair?

The Fair is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro District, on Market and Castro Streets and the surrounding area (see photo below).

Where does the money collected at the entry gates go?

The money collected at the entry gates (and the money collected at the beverage booths) goes directly to the Castro Street Fair beneficiaries. Your contribution will also get you a sticker, which is good for $1.00 off at the Official Castro Street Fair Beverage Booths. The money collected at these booths, along with the exhibitors and sponsors, help to make the Castro Street Fair possible — so indulge away! 

Who’s performing at the Fair this year?

At the Fair this year, you’ll get to enjoy entertainment from well-known artists all day on various different stages. At the Main Stage, you’ll see The "B" Sessions with David Arend & DJ Heylove (11:00AM), The Monster Show (12:30PM and 2:00PM), Dirty Ghosts (2:30PM), Jimmy Hits with Bubbles (3:30PM) and Peaches Christ (4:00PM).
