Castro Street Fair Hosting Public Forum

The Executive Board of the Castro Street Fair is seeking community input. Please join us for a public forum April 21 to discuss the present state, history, and future of this beloved community event.

Traditionally held on the first Sunday in October, the Castro Street Fair has been a consistent community celebration since Harvey Milk founded it in 1974. The Fair has evolved along with neighborhood and the increased challenges of producing large outdoor community events in the San Francisco urban landscape.

Our Board of Directors is seeking community feedback to address the needs of the neighborhood that hosts the event and the Fair attendees.

Castro Street Fair is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has raised nearly $1.5M in event proceeds for community organizations. We are not only a celebration, but also a vehicle to provide much needed community support.

Join us for this forum where we invite members of our diverse community to share their unique perspectives and be heard, as well as to ask questions to the Board Members. We will be able to share important information that we can use in efforts to sustain our event.

The agenda for the event will include:

  • Introduction of Board Executives
  • A brief history of the foundation of the Castro Street Fair
  • Recent history of the Fair and plans for 2018 Event
  • Summary of Fair financials
  • Public Speaking Opportunities
  • Q&A
  • Small group break out

All persons and groups from the SF community are invited to attend. Please RSVP!

We look forward to seeing you there.

$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.
