This year’s Street Fair is March 31st, 2019
The Rolando Street Fair is our community’s favorite annual event and the best intimate street fair in San Diego County. Organized and run by a team of selfless volunteers, this major attraction draws crowds of many thousands. The Fair boasts a main stage with headlining bands, a community stage featuring our budding musicians, dancers, and artists, dozens of local artisans selling their handmade arts & crafts, a variety of fabulous food vendors, a kids play area, and new this year, our beer garden! Located on pretty Rolando Boulevard between towering Silk Oaks (planted over 75 years ago) you can spend the day enjoying our neighborhood, meeting old friends, and making new ones!
Transportation and Parking
On-street parking is available throughout the neighborhood but can be very limited. Please note the following streets will be closed to through-traffic and parking during the fair: Rolando Blvd. between Solita Ave. and El Cajon Blvd., Solita Ave between Filipo Dr. and Rolando Blvd., and Alamo Dr. between El Cajon Blvd. and Solita Dr., and Shannon Ave.
To reach the fair using public transportation, take bus route “1” between Hillcrest and Grossmont which runs down El Cajon Blvd. Get off at the El Cajon Blvd./Rolando Blvd. stop, and the fair will be in sight. The nearest Trolley stop is SDSU. From the SDSU Trolley stop, take the 856 or 936 bus to the College Ave./El Cajon Blvd. stop and transfer to the “1” bus per the instructions above. Bike racks will be provided at the fair on Shannon Ave.
This year we’re introducing the brand new Kids Zone. While still in development the Kids Zone will have free and low-cost activities for kids of all ages!
Thanks to a generous sponsor we are happy to host our first-ever Beer Garden in 2019. Located near the Main Stage the Beer Garden is going to quickly become a favorite.
