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.
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.
