Fourth Avenue Street Fair

Take a walk on the funky side as arts-and-crafts vendors take over historic downtown district twice a year.

Fourth Avenue Street Fair: Take A Walk on The Funky Side

December 11, 12, 13, 2020


The Fourth Avenue Winter Fair takes places Friday, Dec. 11 through Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to dusk each day. 

The Fourth Avenue Spring Fair will return to Tucson for three days (dates TBA) in March 2021.

More than 300 artists are excited to participate in this premier Tucson community event. Come, stroll the streets, all on one floor and closed to automobile traffic, with wide aisles and ever-changing wares. See why this fair that started in 1971 has Tucson-event longevity — we're now celebrating the 50th spring street fair and the 100th show. Fair admission is free. Ample parking is available on side streets and in nearby garages.

    The Setting 

    Historic Fourth Avenue shopping and dining district has always been a step outside the ordinary with its local, independent shops, restaurants and pubs. But, twice a year, the draw is The Fair. This family-friendly tradition takes full advantage of our wonderful Sonoran Desert climate in spring and winter. The Historic Fourth Avenue District is one of Tucson's five dining-and-entertainment areas connected by the Sun Link Streetcar.

    The Vibe

    Savor the springtime sunshine (remember your hat and sunscreen). Meet and talk with merchandise-makers while shopping for arts and crafts — while products change every year, expect a selection of fine art, handmade soaps and salves, artisan foods and crafts, novelties, musical instruments, children's toys, jewelry, apparel and more. Indulge in carnival-style street food, sample local specialties at Tucson's finest food trucks. Groove to live entertainment on two stages rotating local musicians and performers for both grownups and kids.

    North Fourth Avenue Merchants Association

    The Fair is produced by the North Fourth Avenue Merchants Association, Inc., a local nonprofit. The funds are used to support the Avenue’s infrastructure, invest in local neighborhoods and other nonprofits, and to create other free community events throughout the year on Historic Forth Avenue.
