Orange Street Fair Tips

  • Bring your ID if you plan to purchase alcohol.
  • Bring cash for purchases.
  • Wear comfortable, closed toed shoes for walking and protecting feet from spilled drinks.
  • Wear sunscreen and hats during the day. It’s usually hot and shade is limited.
  • Bring your own water – it is available for purchase, but avoid the extra cost if you can.
  • Uber or Lyft to avoid the hassle of parking and drinking responsibly.
  • Have a designated driver.
  • Pets are not allowed except for service animals.
  • Seating is limited and lawn chairs are not permitted.
  • Local businesses will remain open at their discretion.
  • Bring a stroller for little ones, even for those that are mostly done with strollers as there will be lots of walking and little seating.
  • Larger strollers are difficult to navigate crowds.
  • Get there early for the best parking and lighter crowds.
  • Drinking and smoking increases as the day goes on. The earlier the better for families.
