Spring 4th Avenue Street Fair celebrates 50 years (CANCELLED)


UPDATE – 3/12/20 late p.m. Mayor Romero has asked all events with over 50 people be cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, so this 4th Avenue Fair has been cancelled.


SAVE THE DATE: March 20 to 22, 2020 for the Historic Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair. “Three days of handmade goods, arts & crafts, and street food served up in one of Tucson’s coolest districts.”

“The Fourth Avenue Street Fair, recognized as one of the premier community celebrations in the Southwest, is held biannually in the gorgeous Sonoran Desert community of Tucson, Arizona.

We invite you to participate in this 50-year-old tradition which, attracts more than 600,000 guests each year. In addition to over 300 international artisans, we host entertainment stages, children’s activities and tantalizing treats from 40+ food concessionaires. Admission to the festival is free and open to the entire community.

Selected by an experienced jury, our arts and craft fair is designed to attract a variety of high quality handmade art and fine crafts by artists from around the world. The artists’ work is the focal point of the festival. The proceeds generated from the Fair directly support infrastructure and services in the Fourth Avenue Business District, surrounding neighborhood association enrichment projects, multiple community nonprofits and multiple free special community events for all the guests of Tucson’s Historic Fourth Avenue.”

Carolyn’s note:  Questions are being asked about whether large festivals will be held due to the recent corona virus (COVID 19) scare, with the first case being diagnosed in Pima County on March 9. Stay tuned, but this is an open air festival, not in a confined building space. Happy Spring. Updated info will be on their FB page:
