Mira Mesa Street Fair History
The first Mira Mesa Street Fair was organized by the Mira Mesa Town Council in 1999 and has now become a regular annual event on the last Saturday in September. The Mira Mesa Street Fair is completely organized and hosted by community volunteers. It has quickly earned a reputation as one of the best 'community fairs' in the county. The Street Fair committee is dedicated to maintaining the community atmosphere and minimizing the commercialization that has come with growth of many of the other events held around the county.
The Street Fair is held on Camino Ruiz, which is the North/South street next to the Mira Mesa Branch Library, and extends the entire block from New Salem to Mira Mesa Blvd. (Map). Enjoy a fun filled festival atmosphere that is the perfect mix of entertainment, food and exhibitors. Displays include Arts & Crafts vendors, local businesses and civic groups. Visit the Kid’s Zone and 2 community stages.
