One of America's top street fairs is held every Fall and Spring along six blocks of 4th Ave. in Tucson, Arizona. Named after 4th Ave. where the fairs are held and now on its 38th year, the 4th Ave. Fall and Spring Fairs attract 200,000-400,000 visitors. Over 400 arts, crafts, and clothing booths, dozens of food and drink vendors, street musicians and street performers, political activists, hippies, artists, and all sorts of people join the merchants, stores, and restaurants along the hip, hippie, and artsy 4th Ave. The three-day celebration is an expected and fun-filled gathering of the Tucson community and out-of-towners.
The 4th Ave. Spring Fair was held this weekend (April 4-6) and had some great finds in terms of art, jewelry, crafts, and collectibles. Two wall climbing towers were set up along with a “VAN GROW” kids hands-on-art area. Dozens of food booths served an international menu ranging from Mexican, Thai, Greek, Italian, among others to regional fry bed, tri-tip BBQ, fried chicken and more.
