Organizers of San Francisco’s 44th annual Castro Street Fair, set for 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. October 1, have announced Market Street will not be included in this year’s festival and instead will remain open.

“In previous years, the fair has taken place along Market Street, between Diamond and Noe Streets,” organizers said in a news release Monday (July 31). “After careful consideration, the Board of Directors decided to forego closing Market Street and instead concentrate the fairgrounds along Castro Street. … Fairgoers can expect to see changes in the location of entertainment areas, as well as food and beverage vendor placement.”

The rest of the footprint remains unchanged. It will be on Castro from Market to 19th Street and on 18th Street from Noe to Diamond.

A donation of $5 – $10 is suggested at the gate. Donations help support local charities.

An updated map of the fair will be available in early August at

The Bay Area Reporter will have more information in the Thursday, August 3 edition of the paper.
