Held twice a year the Fourth Avenue Street Fair began 40 years ago when Fourth Avenue merchants put tables in front of their stores to attract customers before the holidays. From that beginning it has developed into one of the premier street fairs in the nation, drawing crowds of 200,000 to 400,000 and ranking as one of the top visual arts fairs in the country.
The Street Fair has also developed into a Tucson tradition and an event that has an impact on every Tucsonan in one way or another. The Street Fair is the source of funding for 50+ non-profit groups that derive (in some cases the majority of) their income from the Fair, to the City which obtains a boost in sales taxes and a savings in services demanded, to the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association that earns the funds to keep Fourth Avenue a draw for all who live and visit Tucson. The two annual Street Fairs are Tucson's biggest event!
