Avenues Street Fair
September 7, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 6:00 pm UTC-6
Stop by the SUWA redrock activism booth at this year’s Avenues Street Fair.
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 is now 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. After gaining resident and City approval, we block off five blocks of one of the Avenues east-west streets, set up a stage at each end of the fair for all-day live music, and we fill both sides of the street with 200 booths of local arts and crafts, food vendors, government agencies and local non-profit organizations providing information and unique experiences.
This year’s event will be held on 2nd Avenue between M and R Streets, Salt Lake City, 84103 https://goo.gl/maps/2CbsjuP4EE83GKaHA.
Come by and learn how we all came together to win wilderness protection for 663,000 acres of the San Rafael Swell, Labyrinth Canyon and Desolation Canyon earlier this year! Learn what role, at any level, as a volunteer or activist, you can play in helping to Protect Wild Utah.
