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.
The mission of the Fourth Avenue Street Fair is to provide a community arts event, free to the public, with the highest quality artistic products and services. Selected by a skilled 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 and free special events for the citizens and visitors of Tucson’s Historic Fourth Avenue.
The weather! All year long is a wonderful time to be in the Sonoran Desert. Mild temperatures attract droves of visitors from around the world. The Tucson Metropolitan Area has grown by leaps and bounds in the past decade and now supports a population of over one million residents. The Historic Fourth Avenue Business District, with its tree lined sidewalks and creative retail appeal, is truly the heart of the city. Fourth Avenue is the gateway to Tucson’s thriving arts, culture and commerce.
The Fourth Avenue Street Fair is ablaze with fascinating sights and sounds as more than 400 arts and crafts artisans, musicians, exhibitors and food vendors take part in this three-day community celebration. Artist booths are positioned back to back down the middle of 4th Avenue and 7th Street. The Fourth Avenue Street Fair brings a diverse and dynamic blend of texture, shape and color along six blocks of Tucson’s Historic Business District.
