Street Fair - June 8

June 8th 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 240 Sweet selling handcrafted artisan marshmallows, along with local favorites like Asanda Imports, Urban Handmade and Toxic Beauty.

Food from around the world is featured at Street Fair including fair favorite Jeet with delicious Indian cuisine, La Pampa showcasing Argentinean Bar-B-Q along with Greek, Lebanese and even New Zealand from Cheeky Meat Pies. 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. You can also slip into one of the local restaurants for a delicious dining experience.

For a break from shopping, stop by the Music & Beer Fest at the Bryan Center from noon to 7. Sample a domestic or craft beer, including some delicious seasonals as you listen to the great musical line-up all presented by Peach’s Grill. An exciting addition this June is a special mobile food court next to the Music & Beer Fest.

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 for alternate routes also.
