Spend Labor Day weekend at the Orange International Street Fair, where 15 streets are packed with a variety of cultural activities, food and drink booths, arts and crafts centers, and so much more. Each street is “themed” with a region/country from around the world with local sponsors, vendors and non-profits coming together to celebrate inclusiveness and diversity. Open September 2-4 until 10 p.m. nightly, this family-friendly affair is the perfect place to explore, indulge and bond.
Do keep in mind that parking can be tough around the Plaza Square area, so be ready to walk a few blocks to get to the excitement. Although vendors are still signing up, a few of the participants include Arty Brush and Goals on Children’s Street and Pence Animal Sculpture, Ron’s Wood Design and Soaps by Miss Kitty Girl on Arts and Crafts Street.
