Visit the KXCI booth at the 4th Ave Street Fair!

There are two Street Fairs per year, one in spring and one in winter. The next Street Fair is December 8, 9, 10, 2006. The Street Fair takes place between Ninth Street and University Blvd. along Fourth Avenue. Free to the public, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair brings together 400+ arts and crafts booths, 35+ food vendors, 2 stages, street musicians, food, jugglers, street performers, “VAN GROW” kids hands-on-art area, face painting, balloons, and tons of other fun activities, then packs them into three days of celebration.

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 on sale by the artist/craftsperson.

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: 2 stages with something for everyone!

Come for the entertainment: “VAN GROW” our new FREE hands-on-kids art area. How about flight simulators; climbing rocks; face painting; chair massages; everything and anything you can imagine! The two annual Street Fairs are Tucson’s biggests events, and they couldn’t happen without our sponsors!
