The 37th Folsom Street Fair and 35th Up Your Alley celebrations will be virtual events in 2020 in response to the ongoing pandemic. Folsom Street Events’ Interim Executive Director Angel Adeyoha told SFist:
Since we began sheltering in place in March, the [Folsom Street Events team] has been considering options going forward, and we at one point even thought about canceling the events altogether. Ultimately, we’ve chosen to hold Folsom Street Fair and Up Your Alley virtually, because we feel it is the ethical and the responsible choice.
And in case you worry the move to online will turn the notoriously adult events into some PG-rated snoozefest, Adehoya added, “We’re going to find a digital partner to work with to allow for adult content to be streamed on the event.”
