From everyone at the Castro Street Fair, thank you for a wonderful day!
The sun was shining, everyone had a smile on their face, and the Castro was alive with fantastic performances. We are so grateful to all of our entertainers for gracing our stages with their talent, our amazing sponsors for supporting us, the hundreds of exhibitors who lined the streets, and the thousands of attendees who donated at the gate, supported our Beverage Partners and danced with us in the streets.
Our annual Fair is a labor of love, and we couldn’t do it without the support of our partner beneficiary organizations, who supply us with hundreds of hours of volunteer time – thanks! We share proceeds from the gate donations, as well as proceeds from sales at our Official Beverage Booths, with our beneficiaries. If you weren’t able to donate yesterday, you still can, by texting CASTRO to 41-444.
While we are truly thankful for a successful and safe day of celebration in San Francisco, our hearts are also with the people and visitors of Las Vegas. Such senseless tragedy reminds us to hug our friends and family even tighter.
Finally, we want to appreciate the Castro itself – such a special place is due to a fantastic community of neighbors, officials, businesses, and organizations. We are particularly grateful to the residents and merchants who so graciously welcome the Fair year after year. We are incredibly proud to call the Castro home; it’s our goal to highlight the fabulous attitude of the neighborhood while raising invaluable dollars for local nonprofits. And, we help to buy and maintain the spectacular rainbow flag that flies high over the Castro. Thank you again for making the 44th Castro Street Fair one of the best ever!
