Street Fair,June 9

June 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 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 lots of new vendors including Lady Creepshow’s vintage inspired accessories and interesting jewelry from Metalledwith.

Food from around the world is featured at Street Fair as well as some great vegetarian fare. Relax 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. 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 8. Sample one of many specialty beers, including some delicious summer seasonals like Sam Adams Summer Ale, Sierra Nevada Summer Ale, Goose Island IPA and 312, among others, 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.
