The Folsom Street Fair, now christened MEGAHOOD2021, will take place on September 26.
San Francisco knows how to throw a party, and there are few parties as legendary as the Folsom Street Fair! Tens of thousands of leather and BDSM lovers gather to celebrate sexual liberation in SoMa, dressed in leather, latex, fishnets, harnesses, body paint, thongs, or… nothing at all.
The beloved fair has been christened MEGAHOOD2021 in honor of the first event back in 1984, which was called MEGAHOOD. It will happen from 11am-6pm along Folsom Street between 8th and 13th Streets in SoMa. There is a $10-20 recommended donation at the entrance.
“We’re taking you back to basics. Bringing you into the future. Giving you a vision of where we were and where we’re going on this journey of sexual liberation for ALL,” writes Folsom Street. “The first Folsom Street Fair in 1984 was called MEGAHOOD. A stand against gentrification. An insistence on a place for us all. An event that was all about COMMUNITY. We can’t wait to see you in the street, in your mask, from just far enough away to be absolutely tantalizing. Our stages will be amazing, our exhibitors will be spicy, and our community will be together.”
Attendees will enjoy several hundred booths selling sex toys, gear, and adjacent products, as well as multiple performance stages with live music. You can also expect lots of dancing, erotic performances, and an exciting community environment. There will be a digital guide available to find open bars and restaurants along Folsom Street and the surrounding neighborhood.
All attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination and wear a mask. You can bring your physical vaccination card or the digital version.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, then be sure to save the date for MEGAHOOD2021, happening September 26 from 11am-6pm along Folsom Street in SoMa!
