Street Fair this Saturday

Yellow Springs Street Fair is Saturday, October 13.  This 1-day festival was named the Best Place to People Watch by Ohio Magazine, with streets filled with art, crafts, food, music and entertainment.
Street Fair is all about unique shopping whether from hundreds of vendors lining the streets or our own boutiques.  Of course there is great food from an array of vendors serving international cuisine and our excellent local restaurants.  Be sure to stop by the information tent in the center of Street Fair for a try at the WesBanco Wheel of Fortune or to learn about the programs at the new Antioch College .

Entertainment is always a focus at Street Fair with the fun of an unexpected street performance around every corner.   At the Jackson Lytle Lewis Acoustic Stage next to the Fearless Foodies Bistro, David Baugham kicks off the morning at 10:30 followed by up and coming local musician Noah Back at 11.  Street Fair favorite Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers perform at noon and again at 2 pm.   At 3, Sweet Betsy will perform and Noah Back returns at 4 to close out the day.   While you’re there, stop by the Greene/Soin Hospitals van for water, apples, gifts and information.

                The Street Fair Music & Beer Festival at the Bryan Center starts at noon and lasts until 7.   Sample one of many seasonal craft beers and some old favorites as you listen to the great musical line-up.   Soul Rebels kicks things off at noon, with new performers every hour including the Carl Schumacher Band, Jeanne Ulrich and the Devil’s Backbone, Ryan Judy, Ja Soul and Speaking Suns.  Jones for Revival will round out the day, taking the stage at 6 and then heading over to Peach’s Grill for a free concert at 10.   Be sure to check out the newest models from Wagner Subaru while you’re enjoying the music.

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.   Street Fair 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.  For more information contact the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce at (937) 767-2686 or visit
