NYC Street Fairs

Your Guide to New York Street Festivals, Parades, and Block Parties


You'll find NYC street fairs all over Manhattan from April through November. As soon as the city begins its springtime thaw, the souvlaki vendors, psychics, and smoothie makers take to the streets for almost six months of street fairs and festivals.

Here you'll find our monthly listings of NYC street fairs. Most of the festivals run from about 11 am to 6 pm (unless otherwise indicated).

Please note that we update our street fair listings as soon as the information becomes available. Schedules sometimes change without notice due to inclement weather or random New York City logic. If you know about a street fair that we missed, please let us know.
