7 Reasons to Visit a Street Fair This Summer

July 28, 2014

Going to a street fair is the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon or evening. Besides the opportunity to get some fresh air, and do it for free, here are seven reasons to head to your local street fair (or farmer's market) this summer.

Live entertainment
It's always fun to listen to live music, and at street fairs you may be able to catch a number of acts in one evening. 

Handmade soaps and bath products
Even if you don't buy, sniff testing fragrances like sandalwood, grapefruit, lavender, and inventive combinations like Orange Vanilla Lemon Cream.

Crazy cool art
There is so much talent to be discovered at a street fair. We couldn't get over how local artist Elena Bulatova painted tiny people to create these images of Audrey and Marilyn.

Cute animals
There are always a ton of cute pups on leashes, and some even in strollers, and your local street fair may even have a petting zoo with small animals. We spotted these rescued horses and couldn't resist feeding them carrots.

Foods you wouldn't normally cook for yourself at home
Even on your best night, you probably won't whip up a homemade paella for your family, or throw a tri-tip on the grill and slice it up so thin it practically melts in your mouth. But at a street fair you can eat like you wouldn't eat at home.  

Handmade jewelry and other cool bits
One of the best things about a street fair is scoring a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings or a handmade leather bracelet. Plus, there are usually other talented vendors offering unique wares. We spotted a woman using a hand torch to craft candle holders and lanterns out of tin cans.

People watching
There are so many things to see and do and eat at a street fair, but if you're not looking to spend any money, people watching is always free.
