5051229335_e23129b9e7 The Castro Street Fair Board of Directors just announced the date for their Ruby Anniversary, celebrating 40 years! The fair will take place on Sunday, October 6, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Castro & Market Streets.

“It’s such an honor to continue a tradition that was started by Harvey Milk almost 40 years ago,” said Fred Lopez, President of the Castro Street Fair Board of Directors. “This year, we plan to highlight how this incredible San Francisco tradition continues, year after year, to bring this wonderful community together. We will celebrate the unique spirit of the Castro as we move toward the day of the fair,” he continued.

The Castro Street Fair is a part of the enduring legacy of Harvey Milk, who founded the Fair along with other local merchants in 1974. Since then, the Fair has been a thriving celebration for the Castro neighborhood, and for all of San Francisco. Plans are under way to make this one of the biggest and best Castro Street Fairs ever. Live performances and dance areas will pay tribute to some of the original Castro Street Fair entertainers– such as disco legend, Sylvester.

Charity

Every year, the Castro Street Fair raises money for local charities and the 40th year will be no different. The 39th Annual Castro Street Fair was a huge success, amidst one of San Francisco’s busiest weekends in history. The Fair attracted huge crowds and raised over $76,000 for local charities.

More than 460 individuals logged nearly 2,000 volunteer hours to assist with the production of the event.

On December 11, 2012, the Castro Street Fair Board of Directors distributed $76,327.21 in proceeds to over thirty local beneficiaries.

“The Castro Street Fair takes its role as a fundraising vehicle for local non-profits very seriously, while ensuring that everyone who comes to the Fair has a seriously good time” said George Ridgely, Executive Director of the Castro Street Fair Board of Directors.

Sponsors and Exhibitors

There are many exciting sponsorship opportunities for the Castro Street Fair 40th Anniversary. Exhibitor booths are expected to go on-sale in late March. For more information, contact: [email protected]
