CALL for Featured Artist! 

Each year the Avenues selects a local artist to crate an original work of art that says "What the Avenues Means to Me." The artist then creates an original work of art that becomes the theme image of this year's Fair, and is used on our event poster and in all our publicity materials.  The artist is given a complimentary booth at the Fair.  To be considered as this year's Featured Artist, send an email expressing your interest and samples of your art to .

The Avenues 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!
