Dear Friends and Fans of Folsom Street East:
It is with sadness that the Producers and Board of Directors of Folsom Street East have to announce that the 17th annual Folsom Street East Street Festival this June is going to be cancelled. Though we continue to receive support for this community-building and fundraising event from Community Board 4 and our neighbors on the block (including our producing partner The Eagle NYC), the ever-growing construction on the north side of 28th street has made it impossible for us to successfully and safely hold our annual street festival. Thank you for the years of support from our attendees, sponsors, partners, exhibitors, vendors, performers and volunteers; we are sad that we will not be able to celebrate Pride with you at our fetish-friendly event this year.
We also hope you continue to join Folsom Street East at our other events, including our various LGBT Pride Month events, our annual “A Fetish for Fashion” fashion show this fall, and at the many partner events we participate in throughout the year, and hope to see you back on the kinky streets of NYC next year!
The Folsom Street East Street Festival has always been a benefit event, and we will continue to support our beneficiaries:
We hope that you – even though you won’t be supporting them through your Street Fair entrance donation – will continue to support these organizations as they do their important work with and for our community.
Thanks for 16 great years celebrating sexual freedom with the Folsom Street East Street Festival, and we hope to see you back on the kinky streets of New York City in 2014!
