NYC Street Fairs and Festivals
Street fair season is back! In New York, every warm-weather weekend brings multiple street fairs and with them come chances to sample greasy food, find bargains, and get chair massages. Some fairs even feature live entertainment.

Most of the festivals run from about 11 am to 6 pm. Following is the street fair schedule for April 2012 (also see our street fair schedules (updated as information becomes available) for May, June, July, August, September, and October).

Please note that this schedule may change without notice due to inclement weather.
