Mark Your Calendar: Folsom Street Fair Changing Date For First Time In 20 Years
Dec 22, 2011
Are public gay celebrations under attack? First came word that Chicago Pride was moving both the location and the time of its annual parade. Now producers of San Francisco‘s Folsom Street Fair have announced they’re changing the date of the infamous erotic free-for-all for the first time in two decades.
Traditionally held the final weekend of September, Folsom will be held on Sunday, September 23, 2012—to avoid a scheduling conflict with Oracle OpenWorld, a massive telecom conference running September 30 through October 4.
It’s not so much that their guest list will overlap (though you never know) as it is that Folsom producers are worried there won’t be enough hotel rooms to accommodate everyone.
“We were told only weeks after this year’s fair that nearly the entire inventory of hotel rooms for the city had been sold out for the last weekend of September 2012,” says Folsom Street Fair executive director Demetri Moshoyannis. “So, we were faced with a decision: either move the 2012 fair date and risk upsetting some people who had booked way in advance or not move the fair date, knowing that tens of thousands of visitors would be unable to book rooms at all.”
