June 11

Yellow Springs Street Fair is right around the corner. June 11th is the date to remember for this truly unique 1-day festival that fills the streets with art, crafts, food, music and entertainment.

Street Fair is all about great food, from an array of vendors serving international cuisine to our excellent local restaurants; unique shopping from hundreds of vendors lining the streets or our own boutiques and the fun of an unexpected street performance or simply people watching.

Entertainment is always a focus at Street Fair and this fall is no exception. At the Jackson Lytle Lewis Stage located next to the Food Tent, local favorite, Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers perform at noon and again at 2 pm. Musical performances start at 11 with the sea shanty sounds of the Hardtackers, the acoustic sounds of Sour Root at 1, Sweet Betsy at 3 pm with Dave Berry and Steve Zax closing out the day at 4 pm.

The Street Fair Music Festival & Beer Garden at the Bryan Center starts at noon and lasts until 7. Sample one of many craft beers and some old favorites as you listen to the great musical line-up. The stage kicks things off at noon, with new performers every hour including The Undercovered, Dustin Vincent, Slipstream, Blue Moon Soup, The Ohms, The Pinstripes and The Ark Band. The Ark Band will head over to Peach's for a free performance at 10 pm.

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. There are also several lots available for a small donation to local non-profit organizations; go to for a map and directions.

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.

If you wrote "NO PETS are allowed at Street Fair..." it would be clearer to all readers. I think that's what the village should do in their advertising, too.
