What’s cookin’ at the Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair 2021

Walk, shop, eat, repeat.

After a couple of cancellations due to the pandemic, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair has returned to delight its visitors, shoppers, and most importantly, the eaters.

The winter season’s festivities begin at 10 a.m. until dusk on Friday, December 10 – Sunday, December 12, and there are going to be plenty of edible items to get your hands on. Although, it can be hard to decide what you’d like to eat when you’re inhaling aromas from several different food trucks at once.

If you’re concerned about where to park, there are a few options this time around. A free shuttle service is provided from the Pennington Street Garage and the Tyndal Avenue Garage by VIP Taxi. The Fourth Avenue Merchant Association also recommends parking along the Modern Streetcar line and using Sun Link.

Check out the list of this year’s vendors that are dishin’ out the goods this year.
