Parking is always a challenge so you may want to park a little ways down Chapman Ave and hop the bus one stop. It will save you a lot of money. There are some businesses that rent out their parking lots for the Fair. The prices are usually steep, around $8.00-10.00 but at least those are fairly close to the action. So, plan your budget for parking as well.

The History of the Orange International Street Fair

In 1973, The City of Orange was looking for ideas to celebrate for its one hundredth year. Inspired by the Orange Street Fair of 1910 it was decided that for the centennial celebration Orange would have the Orange International Street FairSM. The Fair was so successful that it has become an annual tradition during Labor Day weekend ever since. The Fair is located near Plaza Park. The streets around the Plaza are closed to auto traffic from Friday evening through Sunday evening so that everyone can wander around on foot and have a great time.
