Hope you were able to attend the 2016 Avenues Street Fair. We had great weather and a great turnout. Several thousand people came to The Avenues Street Fair on 6th Avenue to listen to music; shop at the vendor booths for art, jewelry, clothing and more; and enjoy the good food.
We want to thank everyone that helped this be such a successful event. So thanks all those who volunteered to help during the day (especially the West High School National Honor Society and Boy Scout Troop 34), the bands that played all day long, the businesses that donated to the Opportunity Drawing, the churches that donated tables and chairs, the artists that participated in the People’s Art Gallery, the marchers in the Children’s Parade and especially the Fair goers.
Another big Thank You goes to all the residents on 6th Avenue who shared their street with a few thousand people. We hope the inconvenience of the day was offset by the fun of having all that activity happen almost in your front yard.
We also wish to thank everyone who worked on the Planning Committee starting back in March.
And thank you to all the vendors who had a booth this year. We also want to thank all of our corporate sponsors.
We hope to see you on the second Saturday in September next year!
The Avenues Street Fair began in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the 1970s as a remodeling tool exchange. It expanded into a home tour event to see everyone's handiwork with the borrowed tools, and eventually became a true street fair and one of Utah’s premier community celebrations. Several thousand people now attend each year.
