The Castro Street Fair wouldn’t be possible without the participation of some amazing local nonprofit organizations. If your 501c3 organization can provide volunteer power in exchange for a share of the annual proceeds from the Fair and would like to be considered as a 2024 beneficiary, please email

Over the years the Fair is proud to have given over $1.6 million back to the community.

2023 Beneficiaries

We are also proud to support the Castro Merchants Association in the purchase and maintenance of the iconic Rainbow Flag at Harvey Milk Plaza.

Donations collected at the entry gates not only help to off-set the cost to produce the Castro Street Fair, but we also share proceeds from those donations with the organizations who are staffing our entry gates and welcoming you to the Fair. The Fair is a fundraising opportunity for these local community non-profits, so please be generous in your support. This year we will have multiple ways for you to donate; including cash, credit card, and PayPal. Or you can make a donation in advance of coming to the Fair.

Beverage partners share in the proceeds from the beverage booth that they staff.

On behalf of our beneficiaries we thank you for your support.
