Tucson's 4th Avenue Street Fair
This year's selected poster artist is Linda Pirri
expressionist prints on silk.....
The 4th Avenue Street Fair is held twice a year; once in the spring and once in December. For us snowbirds, it’s a chance to do some Christmas shopping in the sunny outdoors and from some really talented artisans that come to Tucson from all over the Southwest.
There is something for everyone at the 4th Avenue Street Fair. Come for the shopping: 400+ artist’s booths featuring arts and crafts that cover the spectrum from fine art to country crafts. Glass, clay, wood, clothing, metal, jewelry, pre-packaged foods. All handmade and offered for sale by their creators. Come for the food: 35+ food vendors selling an eclectic mix of good things to eat. Greek, Mexican, Thai, BBQ, fry bread, funnel cakes, chicken, and Ada’s favorite, Kettlecorn. Come for the music: Two complete stages featuring only original music and local community performances. It’s three days and two miles of entertainment and shopping, offering something for everyone!
