An ode to Tiergarten in early autumn. Casually cruising through the central park in Berlin admiring the scenery on this late September day.

Only in Berlin (and San Francisco)! The leather tribe comes together again in all their regalia and muscles. A quick jaunt through this year's street fair and a few words from Mr Leather UK.
Folsom Europe, which culminates to its highlight on September 6, the street fair on Fuggerstrasse between noon and 10 p.m. No other event in Europe attracts so many visitors.
The first weekend in September has become a fixed date in the Leather and fetish wold´s agenda. This year, like the years before, clubs and groups from all over the world present themselves at the street fair. Lots of sales stands invite the crowd for shopping, testing and information. Berlin´s bar owners cater to the crowd with many places to eat and drink at the street fair. Popular DJs get the visitors into the right mood with their music.
There will be some innovations this year. The new DJ stage will be set up at the end of Fuggerstarsse near Ansbacher Strasse. Many titleholders from all over the world, including the current Intl. Mr. Leather 2008, Gary Iriza from Palm Springs/USA, Mr. Leather Europe Martin Cedergren from Stockholm and German Mr. Leather Frank from Cologne will support the fundraising projects set up by Folsom Europe by their attendance.
Folsom Europe 2008 will continue to be a peaceful and friendly meeting of this scene and its friends. The oranizing team would like to express their gratitude to Mr. Wowereit for his strong support and also for his salutation to the participants of Folsom Europe 2008.
