This is no indie hipster fair with hand-knit scarves and folk music… Up Your Alley is only for real players, where leather daddies rule the streets of SoMa. If rubber,  biker gear, or any variety of built, hairy men turns you on, then they’ve got it. In their own words, you won’t find a filthier event in the States.

Located in front of the legendary Powerhouse bar, nearly 15,000 fellow leather men and fetish enthusiasts engage in BDSM play at over 50 adult vendors at the 2017 Up Your Alley Fair. Spanking, punching, whips and floggers, bondage, domination and submission, creative water sports, toys and so much more are in full effect.

Who goes to the Up Your Alley Fair? Usually, around 15,000 leather men and fetish enthusiasts attend, making it a smaller, but more local event (read: fewer tourists) than the Folsom Street Fair. Attendees of Up Your Alley are almost exclusively male, mostly gay, into hardcore and BDSM, while Folsom is the more pansexual, gender-diverse fair.
