Set up your booth in The Parking Lot (TPL), at the heart of the Tucson 4th Avenue Street Fair, just a few short blocks from the University of Arizona. Located on the corner of 4th Avenue and 5th Street (Tucson, Arizona), TPL provides a prime location for vendor booth rentals at one of the largest street fairs in the United States. The 4th Avenue Street Fair is free to the public, well promoted by the Fourth Avenue Merchant's Association (FAMA), and brings together 400 arts and crafts booths, 35 food vendors, 4 stages, street musicians, food, jugglers, street performers, kids entertainment, face painting, balloons, and tons of other fun activities. TPL provides up to 50 additional booths on a privately owned parking lot with central frontage on 4th Avenue. FAMA is the official sponsor and promoter of two 4th Avenue Street Fairs per year, one in spring and one in winter. Since it's grassroots beginning in 1970, the 4th Avenue Street Fair has developed into one of the premier street fairs in the nation, drawing crowds of 200,000 to 350,000 and ranking as one of the top visual arts fairs in the country. FAMA street fair booths are juried and feature arts and crafts that cover glass, clay, wood, clothing, metal, jewelry, pre-packaged food, all hand made and on sale by the artist/craftsperson. TPL street fair booths follow similar qualification standards, but TPL does not jury booth applications and will accept certain quality buy-sell, arts, crafts, "kitch" or "funky chic" items, and packaged gourmet foods. Food vendors sponsored by FAMA sell an eclectic mix of Greek, Mexican, Thai, BBQ, fry bread, funnel cakes, chicken, and more. FAMA sponsors music on 3 stages and provides entertainment along the 4th Avenue venue, including kids areas; flight simulators; climbing rocks; face painting; chair massages; and more! TPL provides booth rentals centrally located in the heart of the 4th Avenue venue, but does not itself sponsor food vendors or other entertainment. (Source for FAMA Information: FAMA website, 2003).
