The Folsom Street Fair (FSF) is an annual BDSM and leather subculture street fair in California held on the last Sunday in September and caps San Francisco's "Leather Pride Week". It takes place on Folsom Street between 7th and 12th Streets, in San Francisco's South of Market district.

The event started in 1984 and is the world's largest leather event and showcase for BDSM products and culture. It has grown as a non-profit charity, and local and national non-profits benefit with all donations at the gates going to charity groups as well as numerous fundraising schemes within the festival including games, beverage booths and even spanking for donations to capitalize on the adult-themed exhibitionism.

The coordination agency, Folsom Street Events (FSE), is a registered charity that has also created the Folsom Street Fair East in New York City as well as similar events in Canada and Folsom Europe in Berlin, Germany.
