Twice a year, Tucson’s trendy and cultural street, 4th avenue, hosts two street fairs. These street fairs occur in December and late March/early April. These street fairs bring in thousands of locals and tourists. The tradition of local vendors marketing unique goods on 4th avenue dates back to 1970 . Local vendors have kept this tradition of marketing by attending the street fair twice a year. Vendors include: various food cuisines, restaurants, art, music. Their is also live street performances. Organized and executed by the Fourth Avenue Merchants Association (FAMA), the 4th Avenue Street Fair is Tucson’s largest community event.

The fair includes more than 400 arts and crafts booths, food and drink vendors,street musicians, and tons of fun for the whole family. The 4th avenue's street fair is one of Tucson's premier community events that brings together more than 600,000 fair goers each year.
