Now celebrating its 45th consecutive year, the U District StreetFair is the longest running festival of its kind in the nation. In 1970, community leaders established the StreetFair to heal our community after protests, street riots, and more disrupted the community. Originally a blanket-vending event with lots of free live music, the U District StreetFair has developed into a regional event that features products that are hand-made by individual artists and craftsmen in the USA. In celebration of the international flavor of our community, we invite food vendors to participate along with our many local restaurants to give you an around-the-world food experience.
We have worked very hard to locate and digitize the posters created since the beginning of the fair. We do not have them all yet but enjoy sharing what we have found. Many of these posters are available in commemorative post-card format. If you are interested in purchasing postcards or if you have information on missing posters, please email the U District Chamber of Commerce at Administrator@udistrictchamber.org
