See you at the fair

We are excited to welcome all of you to the 46th Annual Castro Street Fair, today from 11am to 6pm!

It’s going to be a great day of entertainment, exhibitors, food, and beverages in the Castro. Stop by our Info Booth at Castro and Market street to pick up a limited-edition 2019 T-shirt. Have a Trumer Pils, Founder’s, or Spiked Seltzer at one of our four official beverage booths. Your donation of $5 to $10 at the entry gates gets you $1 off that beverage! Watch fun live performances at our Main Stage, this year back on Market street, and hop on over to the Midway for an extravaganza of games. Dance with friends at Dance Alley to a lineup of fabulous DJs, and shake your boots at the Sundance Saloon. Pick up some new swag at our vendor booths, or just hang out and people watch.

And remember that all donations will support the fair and our 2019 beneficiaries!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
