Listed: Five Things to Check Out at Folsom

Folsom Street Fair

San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair, the world's largest leather event, happens this weekend, bringing fetishists, leather enthusiasts, and the just-plain-curious packing into the neighborhood and letting it really all hang out. Although there really is no shortage of sights and experiences to take in, here are five things you may not want to miss:

1. Go see Dragonette, the Toronto-based pop group, as they take the Main Stage (10th and Howard) on Sunday, Sept. 25 from 5:10 to 6:00 p.m., closing out that venue's entertainment lineup that also includes sets from SOLSUN, Fritz Helder and Group Rhoda earlier in the day.

2. Listen to the magnificent Vernessa Mitchell, most famous for being the voice behind the classic club anthems "Reap" and "You Took My Life", as she performs in the Magnitude Dance Area (11th and Howard) from 4:00 to 4:30 p.m.

3. Hang out at Folsom's Playground area, an inclusive, welcoming space for women, trans, genderqueer and gender fluid festivalgoers (regardless of sexual orientation) to enjoy. 9th Street between Folsom Street and Howard Street.

4. On Saturday night (Sept. 24, 9 p.m. - 4 a.m.), put on your best gear and head out to MAGNITUDE, the legendary dance party (complete with dungeon), as it celebrates its 20th anniversary. The Midway, 900 Marin St., San Francisco.

5. Round out the weekend's debauchery at Deviants: Adult Arcade after-party (Sept. 25 from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.) as it returns for a seventh year to close out Folsom. Mezzanine, 444 Jessie Street, San Francisco.
