Every year, the Fair shares our proceeds to help nonprofits continue providing essential services to the communities in and around the Castro.  Additionally, we are proud that we are able to support the purchase and maintenance of the world-famous Rainbow Flag which flies in Harvey Milk Plaza. Since 1998, the Fair is proud to have given over $1.5 million back to the community beneficiaries.
