December 11, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Our Winter Gala is now SOLD OUT! You can join the waiting list for this event at the ticket link (there may be folks who have last-minute schedule changes and make their tickets available) and join the Twisted Windows mailing list to be the first to know about future events:


Step into a kinky winter wonderland at an event that combines a scintillatingly sensual show with interactive marvels. This gala reception features exquisitely er*tic, sensually subversive, and particularly provocative performance art, including suspension bondage, pole dance, burlesque, and kink-ified seasonal songs, as well as decorated attendee photo areas, interactive painting, winter-themed snacks, ornament creation, and other participatory activities. All proceeds go to compensate artists and to support the Folsom Street 501(c)3 non-profit arts and culture organization.

Attendees must also complete a symptom screening and attestation at the door. All attendees must abide by our code of conduct.

ASL interpreters are available upon request – please email by 1 week prior to the event to request an interpreter.

Only VIP tickets come with a reserved seat. Please contact the producers for accessibility questions and accommodations.

We will have volunteer shifts available – email with inquiries!

December 11th is going to be an amazing day of kink events – before the Winter Gala, don’t miss the San Francisco Fetish Flea, produced at @WickedGrounds (just a few blocks away), and the Art and Artisan Fair at the Folsom Street Community Center – all part of the Leather & LGBTQ Cultural District’s Santa Second Saturday!
