    Welcome to the 40th Castro Street Fair!

    CSF40th-ROUND-FINALThe Bay Times, like the Castro Street Fair, is Castro-based and celebrates the diversity of our ever-growing LGBT family. We are the oldest and largest Bay Area newspaper that is fully funded and owned by LGBT individuals. We were the first newspaper in California, and among the first in the world, to be jointly and equally produced by lesbians and gay men. We honor our history and that of the Castro Street Fair!

    Speaking of giving props, check out this year’s Legends Stage. Legendary DJ’s will be spinning tunes non-stop from 11 AM until closing. The list includes Stefanie Phillips, Rolo, Blackstone, Jim Hopkins, David Harness, Page Hodel and Pete Avila. Peaches closes out the Main Stage with a 4 PM performance.

    You can eat, dance, party and shop your way through the festival—not a bad way to spend a Sunday. You can also learn the latest from important local non-profits, such as the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Project Open Hand, Magnet, The Trevor Project and so many more. We additionally love to see the camaraderie of friends meeting each other- often by surprise- catching up with news and just enjoying the free time. Busy lives, moves to the burbs, the lousy economy, and other forces seem to keep us apart a lot these days. The Castro Street Fair provides us with a reason to come together— in community, in our neighborhood—and all for a good cause.
