Downtown Tucson is the top destination for fun things to do in Tucson throughout the year. They hold monthly events, special gatherings, and a vibrant night life. Two times a year, Downtown Tucson is flooded with visitors and vendors for the 4th Avenue Street Fairs!
The Fairs are held bi-annually, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. People from all over Tucson and the surrounding areas congregate Downtown to eat delicious, diet-busting delicacies. They will also shop for great gifts at the arts and crafts booths.
Free to the public, this family-friendly event regularly features over 400 arts and craft booths, 35 food vendors, and two large stages pumping out tunes from local live bands. But that’s just the start!
When you’re inside the 4th Avenue Street Fair, you only see a stream of people as far as the eye can see. On either side of this stream are banks of vendor booths, offering everything from traditional decorations to new-age jewelry and everything in between. As you walk, you pass street musicians jamming out on the pavement and dance groups strutting their stuff on cardboard stages.
For the kiddies, there are face painting booths and balloon animals galore. Movie screenings will be provided as soon as the sun sets.
What We Love
Our favorite part of the fair is the unique gifts you can find. Also, there are very interesting art pieces at the fair’s booths. One of our favorite booths is the Kaleidoscope vendor. There you will find beautiful, hand made Kaleidoscopes that explode with color! Head on down to the next 4th Avenue Street Fair (Fall or Spring) to see all the incredible shops for yourself!
Have a great day!
