About the Tucson Street Fair
The largest Tucson Street Fair is held in the heart of Tucson’s 4th Avenue District two times a year and is most commonly called the “Fourth Avenue Street Fair.” The Tucson Street Fair is held in the spring and in the winter. For more detailed information about the Tucson 4th Avenue Street Fair, confirmation of street fair dates, related events, services, and a map, please visit the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association.
The Tucson Street Fair is free to the public and takes place between Ninth Street and University Boulevard along Fourth Avenue. Sponsored and promoted by the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association (FAMA), the Tucson Street Fair brings together over 400 arts and crafts booths, 35 food vendors, 4 stages, street musicians, food, jugglers, street performers, kids entertainment, face painting, balloons, and tons of other fun activities, all packed into three days of celebration.
The Tucson Fourth Avenue Street Fair began in 1970 when Fourth Avenue merchants put tables in front of their stores to attract customers before the holidays. Fourth Avenue has some of the funky look of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury District. 25 years ago, the Fourth Avenue area was a bit of a hippie haven, sporting head shops and smoky bars. Today, the bars have been cleaned up and the head shops have evaporated. Now the neighborhood is best known for the Tucson Fourth Avenue Street Fair, a three-day event held each spring and winter. The fair attracts street performers, food vendors, social activism groups, craft makers and artisans of all types.
From that humble beginning the Tucson Street Fair has now 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 Tucson Street Fair. Arrive for the shopping with 400 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 on sale by the artist/crafts person. Arrive for the 30 food vendors selling an assortment of good things to eat. Greek, Mexican, Thai, BBQ, fry bread, funnel cakes, chicken, and more. Arrive for the music with 3-4 stages with something for everyone! Arrive for the entertainment with kid’s areas; flight simulators; climbing rocks; face painting; chair massages; everything and anything you can imagine! The two annual Tucson Street Fairs are the city’s biggest events of the year, don’t miss it!
