Over 200 booths selling fine arts & crafts, clothing, jewelry, fair trade items, unique gifts, massages and much more, join the international selection of cuisine from Vietnamese shish-kabob to Mexican empanadas to Thai wraps to hot dogs.But Street Fair in Yellow Springs is much more than an arts and food fair; it’s an all-day festival with entertainment throughout the day. Local favorites, the Egyptian Breeze Belly Dancers and a variety of musicians will perform all day at the Jackson Lytle Williams Stage. You’ll also enjoy street performances by entertainers of all types as you stroll the streets during the festival.
Children & adults alike will enjoy the stories of the Yellow Springs Tale Spinners at the Street Fair Story Tree, near the playground at Mills Lawn. Performances are at 12PM, 1 pm and 2 PM
Live music will be performed from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., on the front lawn of the Bryan Center on Dayton Street. New to Street Fair is our Beer Garden located adjacent to the Music Festival, featuring 8 beers from which to choose. Both are sponsored by Peach’s Grill in Yellow Springs.
The event is free, open to the public, and handicapped accessible. NO PETS WILL BE ALLOWED AT STREET FAIR; ENFORCED BY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. Street Fair is sponsored by the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce with support from the Yellow Springs WesBanco Banking Center and media sponsor WYSO.
But wait, that’s not the end of November. No sir. On Friday, November 23rd at 6:30pm there will be a ZOMBIE WALK to benefit Home, Inc.! Bring a nonperishable food or cash donation (because cash, like zombies, never perishes) to the Bryan Center that Friday and get ready to walk for brains! Plus, at the end of the walk there will be live music by Doctor Meat! For more information, check out www.myspace.com/zombiewalkys or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There’s one more thing…hmmmm…oh yeah! It’s Halloween! On Halloween Day we’ll be hosting a Rock Band tournament for all you scary monsters, superheroes and lazy folks who saw the ADDAMS FAMILY and don’t dress up (Yes, serial killers look like everyone else, we get it…). We’ll have prizes for the winners and the best dressed, so get three friends (or two if one can play and sing), get in costume and get down here on the 31st to rock our faces off! Watch this space for more details!
See, just because winter is bearing down on us like a frosty predator and we’re trying to blow up the moon doesn’t mean we can’t still have a good time!
