The Adams Avenue Street Fair was started in 1981 at the corners of School and Mansfield Streets. The headline band at the time was made up of San Diego Police officers who performed as a community out-reach. Today, the Street Fair has grown to include Adams Avenue Park, several parking lots in a full weekend with six stages on seven blocks along Adams Avenue, to include three beer gardens and over 300 specialty food, arts and craft vendors. The Adams Avenue Street Fair has done much to raise the focus on local, regional, national and international talent.
