San Francisco’s Bearrison Street Fair will return this year!

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Bears of San Francisco are Proud to announce the second annual Bearrison Street Fair. The festival will return to the famed SoMa leather and LGBTQ district! 

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc., (SPI) in collaboration with The Bears of San Francisco (BOSF), have announced the Second Annual Bearrison Street Fair! The event will be returning to San Francisco on October 15, 2022. 

Set to occur in the Leather and LGBTQ Cultural District in SoMa, the event is “A Fair For Every Bear.” SPI and BOSF seek to provide an inclusive event for adult members of the LGBTQ+ community by promoting body positivity and cultural diversity for all, fostering a supportive and welcoming bear scene. Returning in 2022 will be local and national DJs and performing artists, local vendors, VIP goods and services, and the fan favorite live wrestling stage.

“We are beyond thrilled to be coming back for a second annual fair,” says Bearrison Co-Chair and BOSF Chair Erik Greenfrost. “It was always our goal for this to become something the community could look forward to every year, and returning for 2022 aligns with that.”

About The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc., is a 21st century order of queer nuns. Since their first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday in 1979, the Sisters were accused of “ruining it for everyone” with their habitual injection of gaiety into serious affairs, involving themselves in human rights, political activism, and religious intolerance. The Sisters consider it their mission to “ruin” all detrimental conditions including complacency, guilt, and the inability to laugh at one’s self.  Please continue to check our calendar on; we are always adding new material and events.
