Fall Street Fair - Oct. 9

October 9 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 until 7.

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.

Food from around the world is featured at Street Fair. Sit and enjoy your food at the Jackson Lytle Lewis Food Tent where you can also enjoy entertainment throughout the day. Acoustic musicians will perform all afternoon, with the Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers performing at 12 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 beers including several Octoberfest varieties 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.

The event is free, open to the public and handicapped accessible. Handicapped parking is available at the Municipal Lot on Corry St . PETS are not allowed at Street Fair by ordinance and owners will be asked to leave. The Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce thanks sponsors Antioch University Midwest, Wagner Subaru and WesBanco for their support of Street Fair.

There were LOTS of upset folks last Street Fair because they had paid to park but no one had told them about the NO PETS policy; the folks running the Mills Lawn lot need to tell their volunteers this...It is a matter of goodwill for the Village.

We will be placing signage around town about the no pet policy before Street Fair as well as at all of the designated lots. We will be sure the folks operating the lots are aware of the regulation and provide them with information they can give to anyone who still decides to bring a pet. We don't want to put those folks in the position of enforcing Village law, only informing them about it.
