Have Fun in the Sun at the Encinitas Street Fair on April 25-26
What better way to enjoy spring that a couple of days having fun in the sun?
At the Encinitas Street Fair, on April 25 and 26, you’ll find over 450 unique food, arts and crafts vendors, plus four entertainment stages, children’s rides, dog zone, kids zone, bike valets, and a beer garden. From 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., you can take advantage of free family fun, entertainment, a national award-winning Main Street, and a traditional So-Cal beach town. Come for the sun, stay for the moonlight.
There’s something at the fair for everyone. You can head over to the Kids Zone with the family for free activities, or savor craft beers from Stone Brewery and soak up the sun while listening to the best bands in San Diego rock out at the Beer Garden Stage. There is even fun to be had for your four-legged companion in the brand new Dog Zone featuring a dog park and doggie obstacle course! Take a break from the hustle and bustle by listening to the eclectic music at The Lumberyard Courtyard Stage. See the stars of tomorrow perform at the Hansen’s Community Stage and the Encinitas School of Music Stage. On Saturday, come out for the Encinitas Fire Department’s Annual Pancake Breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the 7-Eleven Parking Lot located at D Street and Hwy 101. And, great news for cyclists, two Bike Valet stations are open both days to store your bicycles while you peruse the Street Fair!
