    Orange International Street Fair set for Labor Day Weekend

    The Orange International Street Fair is the annual end-of–summer Labor Day Weekend bash that celebrates its 38th year since being the centerpiece of the City of Orange centennial celebration in 1972 as a re-creation of a 1910 Orange International Fair. The celebration literally draws the world to the center of Greater Orange as world famous Orange Traffic Circle becomes the center of pedestrian traffic on the numerous international themed food streets.

    The free entertainment includes dozen’s of bands that will perform thought the four block downtown Old Towne Orange Plaza traffic circle center representing music from around the globe on the numerous stages on the various streets including the famous Main Stage. More than 80 community organizations dedicated to serving the Greater Orange Communities rely on the Orange International Street Fair as one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.

    Like the past 38 years, the fun is all about the food, music, more food, drinks…and don’t forget the FOOD…from around the world. 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. 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 each day


    The event draws half a million visitors over its three days. Visitors from out-of- town are encouraged to avoid the parking crunch by taking the Metrolink (at reduced weekend rates-see below) to the historic Orange Santa Fe (Metrolink/Amtrak) Depot conveniently located adjacent to the street fair. As always no pets are allowed and wristbands for public alcohol consumption are required. Those wishing to brave the parking drama may try the Chapman University lots.

    Dates and hours of the 2010 Orange International Street Fair are:
    September 3 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    September 4 & 5 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

    CLOSED MONDAY
