It's that time of summer again! The annual Up Your Alley (aka Dore Alley) Street Fair is upon us. The actual fair is this Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. on Dore Alley between Howard and Folsom, and continuing on Folsom from 9th St. to Juniper and an adjoining block of 10th St. I love Up Your Alley because it comes at the end of July, and we never know just what the weather will be like. Hopefully it'll be warm and sunny, but even if it is, expect the coolness to set in around 5 p.m.

Of course, it's not just the fair itself that's happening. There are a lot of additional events all weekend long. Some are "official" events sanctioned and/or produced by the gang at Folsom Street Events (the masterminds behind both the Folsom Street Fair and Up Your Alley). Go to for more information and details. The following is your guide to the main events, in chronological order to help you plan your weekend. Clip it out, or print it. Enjoy, be safe, and tear it up a little!
