The first day of spring officially takes place on March 20th. Can you feel the temperature start to rise outside? If it's springtime in Tucson, that means just one thing. It's time to celebrate with the annual 4th Ave Spring Street Fair!

4th Ave Spring Street Fair 2023
Tweeting birds. Sunshine on your face. Flowers in bloom. All of this points to the gloriousness known as spring. Artists from all over the world come out of hibernation to celebrate the season in Tucson each year. Dozens of food vendors keep everyone's spirits (and energy) up as well. Plus, local artists entertain the masses over this three-day event.
You cannot have a street fair without music. And the talent lined up for the 4th Ave Spring Street Fair is too big for just one stage. Instead, visitors can choose between the 5th St Stage and the 7th St Stage for live music all day, every day.
More than 350,000 people crowd onto 4th Ave for this event each year. So, as you can imagine, parking can be a problem. Fortunately, organizers offer a free shuttle service to get you back and forth starting at 9:30 am each day until the close of the fair. Just make sure you wear good walking shoes to stay comfortable.
The 4th Ave Merchants Association hosts two street fairs each year: spring (in March) and winter (in December). This nonprofit organization uses funds they raise to invest in local Tucson businesses and infrastructure. They also promote local artists and programs essential to help nurture the entrepreneurial and artistic spirit in us all. 2023 marks the 54th year that they have hosted the street fair here in Tucson.
