The Fourth Avenue Street Fair began in 1970 when Fourth Avenue merchants put tables in front of their stores to attract customers before the holidays. From that beginning it has developed into one of the premier street fairs in the nation, drawing crowds of 200,000 to 350,000 and ranking as one of the top visual arts fairs in the country.
There is something for everyone at the Street Fair:
Come for the shopping: 400+ artists booths featuring arts and crafts that cover the spectrum from fine art to country crafts. Glass, clay, wood, clothing, metal, jewelry, pre-packaged food, all hand made and offered for sale by their creators. Come for the food: 35+ food vendors selling an eclectic mix of good things to eat. Greek, Mexican, Thai, BBQ, fry bread, funnel cakes, chicken, and more. Come for the music: Two complete stages featuring only original music and local community performances. Three days of entertainment offering something for everyone! Come for the entertainment: How about flight simulators; climbing rocks; face painting; chair massages; everything and anything you can imagine! The two annual Street Fairs are Tucson’s biggest events, and they could nott happen without our sponsors!
