Thanks for a successful 40th Anniversary (more or less) of the Street Fair on 11th Avenue!

A big Thank You to everyone who participated in the 2018 Fair,  held on 11th Avenue between D and I Streets. 

The party of the year happened on Saturday, September 8th! The Avenues Street Fair has its origins dating to 1978 when the Avenues Restoration Association began holding house tours, antiques sales, tool exchanges and parties on nearby lawns. It has been held every year (more or less) since then, making this year's Fair our 40th Anniversary (more or less)!. 

Thanks to all who attended and supported our local vendors, artists, entrepreneurs, charitable and political organizations. Thanks to all the entertainers, vendors and other organizations that help draw the crowds. And a special thanks to all our volunteers, donors, and corporate sponsors. And a really special thanks to all the residents on 11th Avenue, who shared their street with a few thousands friends.

Celebrating 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 on September 8th!
