Castro Street Fair Annual Event

By Charlotte Robinson, October 04, 2018
The 45th Annual Castro Street Fair takes place on Sunday October 7th from 11A to 6P in & around Castro & 18th Streets in San Francisco, California. This is one of the oldest LGBTQ community celebrations in the world founded by Harvey Milk in 1974. The street fair seeks to honor Milk’s original vision that embodies all that is San Francisco & the Castro which is an historical, hyper-local, grass-roots event, built to support & reflect the community & its important causes. The Castro Street Fair not only is a showcase & celebration of the Castro neighborhood & community but it also features a wide array of local artists, craftspeople & performers with than 50,000 guests visiting the Fair annually as well as over 200 exhibitors. Hundreds of local artists, vendors, craftspeople & organizations line the streets & celebrate the diversity of the neighborhood. There are also live entertainment & dance stages throughout the fairgrounds. There is a suggested donation of $5 or $10 at the entry gates the day of the fair or online donations anytime with proceeds going to the non-profit organizations in there beneficiaries roster for the year. Last year the Castro Fair donated $55,000 in proceeds for their amazing nonprofit beneficiary organizational partners to help them continue providing essential services to the communities in & around the Castro. Additionally they were able to support the purchase & maintenance of the world-famous Rainbow Flag which flies in Harvey Milk Plaza. Since 1998, the Fair is proud to have given nearly $1.5 million back to its community beneficiaries.
