Street Fair Celebrates Salt Lake City's Avenues Neighborhoods

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. We hold the Avenues Street Fair on a different street each year to highlight the eclectic architecture and history of the Avenues neighborhoods.  Several thousand people now attend each year. See you in September!
