Greenwich Village Street Fair When the warm spring weather begins in April, New Yorkers take to the streets.

Just try to imagine a state fair - without the livestock - arranged within a few city blocks and you'll begin to see why these fairs and street festivals are so popular with New Yorkers and visitors alike.

Forget the calories and start with the food

You'll be walking enough to burn off a few of the calories in the delicious zeppoles or the sausage and pepper heros. Stop by a crepe stand for the closest thing to Paris street food that you'll find on this side of the Atlantic.

Chinese, West Indian and Indian food can be found at most of the fairs - along with gyros, lots of other ethnic foods and a good sampling of traditional American treats. One of the most famous street fairs, The Ninth Avenue Food Festival, provides samples of gourmet restaurant offerings from some of the top chefs in the area in mid-May. Another great New York tradition, the Feast of San Gennaro, rounds out the New York street fair schedule with a Festa Italiana not to be missed in mid-September.

Walk, eat, shop

At most New York street fairs, there are bargains to be had - especially if you're looking for socks or cosmetics, rugs, houseplants, hand crafted jewelry... the list goes on. While some of the pricier items are for tourists, you may find a keepsake that is worth spending a bit extra for.

Most of the vendors are willing to haggle a little, especially at the end of the day. Know your prices and don't assume that because it's being sold at a street fair you are getting a bargain.

San Gennaro street fair, Little Italy
One of the NYC's oldest street fairs, the 2018 Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy happens in September.

Music of the streets

As you walk through the streets, you'll be entertained by local radio stations booming out their sounds, along with live performances drawing crowds of appreciative listeners. The demonstration infomercials by vendors of kitchen slicers often combine with the music and the hum of the crowd - to create a city symphony you won't find in any concert hall.
