The event, was born in 2003, and, to date, represents a cornerstone of gay BDSM and leather culture. The Festival represents the European edition of the Folsom Street Fair, the event that takes place in San Francisco on the last Sunday of September. The highlight will be, as usual, the great Saturday parade: meeting at 12 at the corner of Welser and Fuggerstrasse.

Each year, it gathers an impressive number of visitors. Number that grows exponentially from edition to edition. It takes place every year in Berlin in the first week of September and finances support associations for HIV-positive people and those involved in the fight against AIDS in Germany and the Netherlands.

However, if you think that the event is the exclusive preserve of the gay community, you are very wrong. Folsom Europe Berlin is much more. It is a cultural event that heterosexuals, bisexuals and singles take part in. All united by the same passion; interested in listening to music and learning about clothing, machinery and everything that revolves around this world. A world that plays on a sexuality full of imagination, seduction and extreme eroticism. Let yourself be carried away. You will also have the opportunity to see a beautiful city.
