"We understand this is a major disappointment for the hundreds of artists and the thousands of folks who look forward to this event."
Perusing around for unique bites and artisan gifts will have to wait a little longer — again.
After a few weeks of mulling it over, Historic Fourth Avenue has decided to cancel the annual Spring Street Fair, which was supposed to take place on Friday, March 19 – Sunday, March 21.
The North Fourth Avenue Merchants Association said the following in a release:
“As we’re sure you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that it’s now vital to limit social contact and avoid gathering. For that reason, we have no choice but to cancel the Spring 2021 Street Fair. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand the steps we’re taking to help keep our staff, partners and attendees safe.”
The group had been working closely with the local Health Department, City of Tucson, and State professionals to determine the “best course for the Spring 2021 Street Fair.”
The Merchants Association stated that without obtaining the proper permitting, the team was unable to get the Street Fair kickstarted, but mentioned that they’re still appreciative of the City of Tucson and the Pima County Health Department.
