An update from your friends at the Castro Street Fair

Collage of past Castro Street Fairs

For over 45 years the Castro Street Fair has been proud to provide a wonderful opportunity every year to join together and celebrate the unique nature of the best neighborhood in San Francisco, while raising important funds for local nonprofit organizations. In 2019, the Fair was able to donate $54,750 back to help improve the lives of our neighbors and partners. In fact, last year the Fair reached the milestone of having given back one million dollars to San Francisco nonprofits.

Because of the unique challenges of the pandemic and to comply with local mandates, the Castro Street Fair will not be taking place in its usual form this year. Our first responsibility is to protect the safety of our friends, families, beneficiaries and supporters. The Board of Directors is currently working with our partners to find ways in which to highlight the Castro leading up to what would have been Fair weekend, as well as encourage much-needed business to the local merchants. We will be sharing those plans in the coming months, and we want the community to support one another in the meantime. We hope to be back in the streets of the Castro, along with all of you, in 2021.

Be safe and wear a mask!
