Folsom Street Fair, the biggest, most legendary leather fetish party in the world is getting ready to takeover San Francisco on Sunday. The annual celebration of leather, fetish and BDSM communities brings hundreds of thousands of people to SoMa. The city is expecting some 400,000 to take over 13 city blocks to “indulge their fetishes, shed their clothes, dance, play and gawk,” according to SFGate.The official Folsom entertainment, which takes place across five stages, will be provided by artists like Ladyhawke, Missing Persons and DJ Vin Soul. But we all know the real show happens in the street.
Now in its 8th year, the street fair takes place on Folsom Street between eighth and 13th streets. For more information about Folsom, visit their website here.
