Encinitas 101 to host Fall Street Fair


The 25th annual Fall Street Fair, presented by the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Associaton ( and sponsored by Tri-City Medical Center (, returns to downtown Encinitas from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 22.

With 450-plus booths to visit, and dozens of downtown Encinitas retailers, this is a perfect opportunity for holiday shopping. Fairgoers can also enjoy music and dance performances on three stages, including a first for the Fall Festival: the Karl Strauss Beer Garden Stage.

Children of all ages will enjoy a wide range of interactive booths and rides in the Kids Zone, in The Lumberyard parking lot at H Street.

Dog owners and their canine companions will receive special treatment in the Dog Zone, in The Lumberyard’s I Street lot. Besides vendors and exhibitors, there will be a 2,000-plus-square-foot artificial turf dog park, including an agility course provided by Cognitive Dogs Training Center.

Cyclists can leave their bikes at each end of the festival, at D Street or J Street, thanks to the free Bike Valet service sponsored by Electra Bikes.

At J Street, the festival’s south end, Smart will be offering free test drives of electric and gas-powered models.

Coast Highway 101 will be closed from D Street to J Street, starting at 4 a.m. Parking will be available in the Civic Center lots on the east side of Vulcan, between E and F streets, and in the Moonlight Beach lot at 4th and C Street.
