Everything You Need to Know About the Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, it’s time for the annual winter street fair on Historic Fourth Avenue. This magical winter shopping experience takes place on Fourth Avenue for three days in December. This year, that’s December 7, 8, and 9! 

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.

We invite you to participate in this 48-year-old tradition which, attracts more than 500,000 guests each year. In addition to over 300 international artisans, we host entertainment stages, children’s activities and tantalizing treats from 40+ food concessionaires. Admission to the festival is free and open to the entire community.


Parking downtown isn’t easy, and that’s particularly true around the street fair days. But never fear, there’s a great alternative to finding that perfect parking spot. The Tucson Streetcar will STILL BE RUNNING. The streetcar route usually heads up and down Fourth Ave, but for the street fair weekend, it will be diverted via shuttle.

Animals at the Street Fair

There is a strict “No Pets” policy at the Fourth Avenue Street Fair. We love our furry friends as much as you, but due to the number of people attending the street fairs each season, we ask that for your safety, your pet’s safety, and the safety of others that you DO NOT BRING YOUR PETS to the street fairs. 

Street Fair Foods

One of our favorite things about the street fair is the food! You can literally eat your way up and down the Avenue, sample new things each day, and never run out of tasty things to try. We know a guide to all the yummy options is helpful, and luckily our friends at Tucson Foodie have helped create a guide to all the eats at the fair.
