The fact the street fair beat out all the other wonderful festivals throughout town proves that the magic of Tucson isn’t just our culture, but our inventiveness. At the Fourth Avenue Street Fair, you can wander between vendor stalls, finding custom jewelry, screen-printed clothing, kitchen gadgets, junkyard sculptures and designer notebooks, and then treat yourself to a cool drink at the lemonade stand. The Street Fair takes everything that’s great about a county fair and combines it with the wonderfully wacky style of Fourth Avenue—it’s a treasure trove of a festival you can find only in Tucson. The fair planned for this December has been canceled but it surely will be back. More than half a million guests each year can’t be wrong.
