Tens of thousands of people dressed in outrageous leather, rubber and fetish attire will descend on a corner of San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Sunday for the 40th annual Folsom Street Fair.
And that means a number of streets will be closed, forcing traffic detours for motorists and bicyclists and rerouted Muni buses beginning Saturday evening, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.
The following streets will be closed from 7 p.m. Saturday to midnight Sunday.
Folsom Street, between Eighth and 13th streets
Ninth Street, between Howard and Harrison streets
10th Street, between Howard and Harrison streets
11th Street, between Howard and Harrison streets
12th Street, between Howard and Harrison streets
All alleys and intersections between Eighth and 13th streets and between Howard and Harrison streets
The following bus lines will be rerouted for the event:
Inbound: The three stops between Folsom and 11th streets and Folsom and Eighth streets will be missed. Use the stops located at Folsom and 14th streets, Bryant and Division streets, Bryant and Ninth streets, Bryant and Eighth streets and Seventh and Folsom streets.
Outbound: The 11th and Harrison streets and Folsom and 11th streets stops will be missed. Use the Harrison and Ninth streets and Folsom and 14th streets stops.
