I’m one of those people who loves this season. To me, all the clichés about Spring ring true, especially that fresh promise of renewal.
So it’s fitting that after taking two COVID years off, our cherished and freeEncinitas Spring Street Fair is blooming once again this weekend. Bring the family (yep, dogs, too!) to browse among 450 unique food, arts and crafts vendors, along with four entertainment stages, children’s rides and a whole bunch more.
38th Annual Encinitas Spring Street Fair
This Saturday and Sunday, April 9 & 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Downtown Encinitas – Coast Hwy 101 from D to J Streets
We’re still experiencing a pandemic, so the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association is following county protocol by increasing handwashing stations, reducing the number of people in the beer garden, and generally running an event that emphasizes safety.
Celebrations as big as this one generate a lot of waste, so the MainStreet Association is working with EDCO to go green by using eco-friendly packaging and collecting organic waste.
We’re also encouraged to avoid parking hassles by riding our bikes or walking to the downtown event – bike valets will be on hand to safely store your bicycles while you enjoy yourself. Income from the Street Fair will go to support local Encinitas businesses.

Drop by and say hi!
My State Senate campaign team and I will have a booth there, joined by two of my colleagues and fellow candidates – Councilmember Tony Kranz, who’s running for Mayor of Encinitas, and Councilmember Joy Lyndes, who is seeking to retain her District 3 seat that comprises Cardiff and part of New Encinitas.
The forecast predicts great weather, quite a bit cooler than the high temperatures of the last couple of days. We’re looking forward to meeting you at this happy celebration of Spring! Personally, I’m forecasting fun!
