Street Fair October 13

October 13 is the date to remember for the Yellow Springs Street Fair, a unique festival that fills the streets of Yellow Springs with people enjoying a wonderful mix of vendors, food and performers.   But remember it’s only one day, from 9 am to 5 pm with the Music Festival starting at noon and lasting until 7pm.

Take what is already special about Yellow Springs and multiply it on Street Fair day when over 200 vendors join the 50 shops and galleries selling one of a kind art, beautiful hand-crafted items and unique imports.  You’ll find old favorites like Crazy Uncle Jester’s hot sauces and new vendors such as Vintage Chic selling vintage inspired accessories  along with local favorites like Asanda Imports, Urban Handmade and Toxic Beauty.

Food from around the world can be found on Bulldog Alley.  Old favorite Jeet will be offering up some delicious Indian fare and new must try La Pampa will be showcasing Argentinean Bar-B-Q.  Grab a Gyro from Greek Island, some incredible Lebanese from St. Ignatius or vegetarian selections from Columbus based Nicolasa’s.  Relax at the Jackson Lytle Lewis Food Tent where you can also enjoy entertainment throughout the day. Acoustic musicians will perform beginning at 10am and go all afternoon, with the Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers performing at noon and 2. You can also slip into one of the local restaurants for a delicious dining experience.

For a break from shopping, stop by the Music Festival & Beer Garden at the Bryan Center from noon to 7. Sample one of many specialty beers, including some delicious fall seasonals as you listen to the great musical line-up all presented by Peach’s Grill. 

To make getting to Street Fair easier, use our free shuttle service from Young’s Dairy at 6800 Springfield-Xenia Rd. or Yellow Springs High School at 420 E. Enon Rd. The shuttle service is available from 9 am to 7 pm. Check the Chamber website for alternate routes also.

The event is free, and open to the public. Handicapped parking is available at the Municipal Lot on Corry St .
