International Street Fair – Orange, CA

Shortly after I arrived in the Orange area, the International Street Fair was born as a way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the city of Orange. The event took place in 1973, and has been held every year since then.

I have wonderful memories of my father cooking up a storm with his friends from the Sons of Italy. Always involved with the community, he had a love of great food, heritage, and spending time with friends. All of those things are wrapped up in the International Street Fair for many local residents. / CC BY-SA 2.0

The International Street Fair is held each Labor Day weekend at the Circle in Orange, CA. There is amazing food, music, and even some fun shopping to be had, making it a wonderful place to go with a group of friends.

Regardless of the type of food you prefer, you’ll probably find it at the Street Fair, including: English, Greek, Dutch, Swiss on W. Chapman Avenue; All American and Mexican on E. Chapman Avenue; German, Norwegian, Polynesian, and Danish on the North end of Glassell, and Italian, Australian, Japanese, Asian, and Irish on the South side of Glassell.

The festivities begin on Friday, September 4th at 5 PM and conclude at 10 PM on Sunday, September 6th, 2009. If you would like to volunteer, please visit If you’d just like to have a great time, just pop down to the Orange Circle any time over the Labor Day weekend. There is no entrance fee, but be sure to bring money for all the great food, and crafts.

Please be aware that parking is very, very difficult during the International Street Fair.
