Dear ,

The 2016 Castro Street Fair is quickly approaching! As a beneficiary this year, the Castro/Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association needs your help to volunteer at the fair!

C/EVNA Volunteers at the 2015 Fair

The Castro Street Fair is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Castro District, at the intersection of Market & Castro Streets and the surrounding area. The Castro Street Fair is a community street celebration that was founded by Harvey Milk in 1974. Hundreds of local artists, vendors, craftspeople, and organizations line the streets and celebrate the diversity of the neighborhood. Stages with live entertainment and dance stages can be found throughout the fairgrounds.

As a beneficiary, our neighborhood association will benefit greatly from much needed funds to continue our mission, engage our members, residents, and merchants, in addition to distributing our bi-monthly newsletter - The Eureka!

Castro/Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association (EVNA), formed in 1881 as the Eureka Valley Promotion Association (EVPA), provides a public forum for the people who live, work, and play in the greater Eureka Valley area.

Our membership meetings are open to the public and are held on the  Fourth Wednesday of the Month each January, March, May, September and November, 7pm at the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy.  Additionally, EVNA Committees and the Board of Directors meet regularly for the conduct of business.

Also, don't forget about our upcoming forum:


As part of the EVNA’s mission to provide a public forum in Eureka Valley to discuss issues and concerns and help develop solutions to improve our neighborhood, EVNA is sponsoring a panel discussion on homelessness in the Castro. The panel will be made up of a diverse group of speakers including Jeff Montejano, Legislative Aide to San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell, Andrea Aiello, Executive Director of the Castro Community Benefits District and Michael Stoll, Executive Director of San Francisco Public Press. The panel discussion will take place at the next EVNA General Membership meeting:

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016, 7:00 pm to 8:30pm
Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy
4235 19th Street (at Collingwood)

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions related to the Castro Street Fair, I hope to see you there!
