World’s largest leather and fetish events to go virtual in 2020

Our board of directors and staff feel that it is the best for the health and safety of our community to cancel in-person events in 2020. Please keep your calendars marked for Up Your Alley weekend, July 26, 2020, and Folsom Street Fair weekend, September 27, 2020 for our virtual fairs. We are excited to bring you the events you know and love, but in YOUR alley! Please continue to monitor and follow the recommendations of the City of San Francisco, the CDC, and California Department of Public Health. We will provide further information as the situation develops.
While we all learn more, please follow the current CDC recommendations:
STAY HOME. Following the CA stay-at-home order is the best way to keep each other safe.
Clean your hands often.
Avoid close contact.
Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
Cover coughs and sneezes.
Clean and disinfect.

The Playground


The Playground is a space that explicitly centers those at the margins of the leather and kink community and our society at large, providing hot, safer space for women of every kind and all trans and non-binary folks. We make community together by creating this sex positive, kink inclusive space and filling it with delightfully filthy joy!

There will be performances, demos, DJ’s, dancing, flirting, flagging, bootblacks, prizes, merch and more!

Anyone who identifies as a woman, non-binary, genderqueer, two spirit, gender fluid, trans masculine, trans feminine, transgender, or any other gender beyond the binary are welcome, including all sexualities, sexual orientations, and sexual expressions.  If your group includes cis men, please enjoy the Queer Commons where you can sit in the shade, watch the Playground stage, and mix and mingle with ALL the queers of all genders. We love our accomplices and need your support to hold this treasured space.
