This 30 year old, annual spring street festival is located on Grand Avenue between Escondido Blvd and Juniper Street in beautiful Historic Downtown Escondido.
Since 1989, the Escondido Street Festival has had many names but has brought thousands of people to our beautiful historic downtown. In 2022, under new ownership by the Escondido Downtown Business Association and with the help of a music grant, improvements were made to increase marketing and add quality professional live music, stage and sound and beer and wine gardens. The result of these changes brought a 75% increase in vendors. According to city calculated cell phone data, last year's festival brought over 60,000 people, doubling the prior year’s attendance. In fact, the Escondido Street Festival was the biggest event in the City of Escondido in the last 5 years!
In addition to the traditional street fair format, this years festival will, once again, include free Professional Live Music, a Beer & Wine Garden and Art in the Garden. Bring the family to shop from hundreds of vendors including unique hand-crafted gifts and imports, and international cuisine.
Managed by the Escondido Downtown Business Association.
