The Encinitas Spring Street Fair returned to Coast Highway 101 for the 36th year on April 27 and 28, running the length of the thoroughfare from D to J Streets. There was international food, live music, rides for children and a beer garden. More than 400 vendors were in attendance, with an emphasis on arts, antiques and handmade crafts. Ongoing since 1983, the two-day fair drew a crowd of about 70,000 this year, organizers reported.

“This year, we really tried to highlight local vendors and artisans,” Irene Pyun, executive director of the Encinitas 101 MainStreet Association, said in an email update to the North Coast Current. “Our beer garden was also at maximum capacity on Saturday which was great.”

The downtown organization aims to add a local artists wing to the fair in the future with a goal of 20 booths, according to Pyun.

“We had roughly 35,000 attendees a day this year and 460 vendors come out,” Pyun said of this season’s event.
