40th Annual Orange International Street Fair – Old Towne Orange
Today marks the 40th annual Orange International Street Fair here in Old Towne Orange, California. This year’s attendance is expected to be over 400,000 people in the 3 days the Fair runs. Each year people come for great food, great music and you guessed it…great beer. Admission is free for anyone attending the event, and menu prices at the different booths range from $2.00-$10.00 or so.
Dozens of local non-profits, booster clubs and charities spend months planning for the 3 day event where they sell food and drink from nearly every country and culture around the world. Street themes include: American, Mexican, Greek, German, Italian, Polynesian, Irish, Ginza, Norwegian, Danish, English, Dutch, Swiss, Australian and Asian! IF you can’t find something to eat here, they you are truly missing out of some of the best homemade treats in all of California! One of our favorite non-profits, Orange Rotary Club has a great Kettle Corn booth, so be sure to stop by and say hi to the owner of Remland Insurance, Gary Remland.
This year’s Street Fair features 7 music stages, a Children’s Street with games, prizes and fun, Arts & Craft booths, Community Groups, Commercial Businesses and more. There is a little bit of something for every member of the family and it’s an overall great time! We highly recommend arriving before dark and leaving before 8:00pm if you plan to bring small children. It gets extremely busy in the later evening and very hard to walk around with a group.
Saturday and Sunday breakfast are wonderful on German & Danish street where you can feast on native donuts from the respective countries. Be safe and enjoy this wonderful community event! If you are looking for parking, local lots charge around $10.00 per vehicle. You can park in most of the surrounding neighborhoods for free and walk in, just be sure to read the posted signs around the street.
Stay safe, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen and enjoy celebrating Labor Day, Old Towne Orange style!
