What to Eat & Drink at the 2024 Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair

March 15, 2024
By Matt Sterner

Twice a year, the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association (FAMA) hosts the bi-annual tradition just in time for the holidays in December and then again during Tucson’s near-perfect weather in March.

Therefore, the Spring Street Fair is coming up quickly! The three-day event is happening on Friday, March 22 – Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and then 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

For more than 50 years now, the family-friendly tradition has brought over 350,000 people to the Old Pueblo!

The fair hosts artists from around the world, local and regional food, live entertainment, and offers something for everyone of all ages. The Fourth Avenue Street Fair is recognized locally, nationally, and internationally and there are usually more than 400 booths stretched out along the Avenue.

The three-day event has been recognized as a “Top 100 Event in the World” for more than 25 years, and once you experience the fair for yourself, it’s apparent why it receives so much praise.

Shop, eat, drink, and embrace the local community. Also, this season’s Street Fair will have four beer booths featuring Barrio Brewing and other breweries, a Ben’s Bells activity center, a couple of stages for live music, an axe-throwing area, and The Cantina — a whiskey, vodka, and other spirits tasting spot found at Antigone’s parking lot.
