Event Description

The Castro Street Fair is always the first Sunday in October!

The Castro Street Fair is a huge daytime costume party, the 40th Castro Street Fair fills the streets of the Castro with several stages of entertainment, unique costumes, art, food and encourages everyone to bring a little of their inner freak to the festivities. The Fair is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro District, at the intersection of Market & Castro Streets and the surrounding area.

The Castro Street Fair is a community street celebration that was founded by Harvey Milk in 1974. Hundreds of local artists, vendors, craftspeople, and organizations line the streets and celebrate the diversity of the neighborhood. Stages with live entertainment and dance stages can be found throughout the fairgrounds.

The Fair is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and all proceeds go directly to charitable causes important to the Castro community. Additionally, the Fair funds the rainbow flag that flies over the intersection of Castro and Market.

Come on down and support local artists, see live music and enjoy a day in the sun! The KOFY Crew will be onsite playing games and giving away awesome SWAG! Don't miss it!
