The Orange Street Fair: Around the World in 3 Days
The Orange Street Fair:
Around the World in 3 Days
The 36th Annual Orange International Street Fair returns to the world famous Orange Plaza this Labor Day weekend. The largest non-profit fund raiser in the Greater Orange Communities, the all volunteer event has grown over the last three decades into the official end-of-the-summer-bash for Southern California. The theme for this year’s party in the street is Around the World in 3 Days. Like the past 35 years, the fun is all about the food, music, more food, drinks…and don’t forget the FOOD…from around the world. There are 88 non-profit groups participating and the money goes to these Greater Orange programs and groups. Craftsmen will be selling handmade items around the Plaza and present and past Orange Street Fair commemoratives will be on sale to complete your Orange Street Fair collection.
The Children’s Street family oriented activities will again be offered on Orange Street just off East Chapman Ave. Seven stages including the famous Main Stage on the various streets will provide free entertainment. Over 1200 volunteers have been preparing to make the expected half million visitors feel welcome.
The Orange Street Fair is in Orange Old Towne at the Orange Plaza the Traffic Circle intersection of Chapman and Glassell Streets in Orange. The fair runs Friday- Sunday (yes Sunday is the last day…Monday Labor Day is clean-up). Entering the street fair as always is free. Alcohol Sales on the street are over at 9:00 p.m. and a wrist band to purchase and drink at the fair must be purchased for $2.00 per day.
This year’s fair is dedicated to the memories of Norwegian Street’s Paul Carson and Street Captain Dave Crawford.
