$55,000 donated to our beneficiares

We are so happy to have ended 2017 on such a good note, and we have all of our neighbors, volunteers, and partners to thank!

On December 14th of 2017, the Castro Street Fair Board of Directors held our annual Holiday Party where we awarded $55,000.00 in proceeds to our amazing 2017 nonprofit beneficiary organizational partners. Since 1998, the Fair is proud to have given nearly $1.5 million back to it’s community beneficiaries.

We hope that 2018, which will showcase the 45th Castro Street Fair, brings even more good fortune to the most fabulous neighborhood of San Francisco.
