Folsom Street Fair

On the third Sunday of September, 300,000+ kinky leatherfolk (and curious, often shocked tourists) descend on a few blocks South of Market in SF for a day of camaraderie, dressing-to-impress, and of course, the hot, sexy fun that is the Folsom Street Fair.

On Sunday, September 21, 2014 Janus will be once again put its best face forward (along with other sexy body parts) at a booth that will include both Outreach and a Charity Spanking and Flogging Booth.

This is all volunteer, and we draw from all parts of the community in this effort.

The information below is for volunteering and also for the benefits of membership.


We have two main areas that need staffing during the Fair - The Outreach Booth, and The Charity Flogging & Spanking Booth. We also need set-up and tear-down folks. Shifts are generally two hours and if you have a time preference we will try our best to accommodate you while making sure all shifts are covered.

The Charity Spanking and Flogging area needs dynamic tops, "topping support" staff, and energetic Emcees. Outreach needs personable, friendly folks who are comfortable speaking with fair-goers about what we do and why Janus membership will benefit them.

The schedule is:
Setup 7:30-9:30 AM
Outreach 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Spanking/Flogging 11AM to 5:30 PM
Teardown: 6:00 PM

Don't miss out on the fun, and the chance to contribute to our community at this one-of-a-kind event. Besides, it's for charity!

More information about Folsom is distributed on the Janus Announce email list starting in late August. We hope to see you there.

Members benefits

At every Folsom for the past few years, we have had a "Member Booth" as a respite for a street fair that can often be challenging.

The Member Booth is a 10x10 foot booth that provides shade, snacks and water for Janus members, their guests and members of reciprocal organizations.

It is not meant to be a "camping spot," but more like an oasis in the desert.

Please look for Folsom updates and more information about the member booth when it gets closer to the event.

If you have any questions, please email us.
