What has turned into Manteca’s biggest springtime event — the 23rd annual Crossroads Street Faire — is returning to downtown streets on Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7.
It is once again a Manteca Chamber of Commerce event. The chamber launched the street fair in 1996 and ran it for a number of years before it was taken over by the now defunct Manteca Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The event that takes place in the triangle formed by the railroad tracks, Main Street and Center Street typically attracts between 30,000 and 40,000 people over two days.
Booth space is still available. Food vendors are $450, commercial and information booths are $320, and non-profit booths are $200.
The street fair is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Information can be found at manteca.org/chamber-events-crossroads-street-fair/ or you can call the chamber at 209.239.6131.
It is one of two new events the chamber is involved in this year.
The other is the Manteca 2019 Summer Series that takes place on three Thursday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m. — June 27, July 18, and Aug. 1 — at Library Park. It replaces the summer farmers market.
The June 27 event will be a business expo and young entrepreneur day. The July 18 event will be a spa/health/fitness day while Aug. 1 is the Maker’s Market.
Plans call for live music as well as food and a beer and wine garden similar to what operated in concert with Market & Music at the Park.
Food booths for members are $50 for one day and $150 for all three. For non-members they are $60 for one date and $180 for all three.
Craft and commercial booths are $40 a day for members and $50 a day for non-members. The member price for all three days is $120 and non-member price is $150.
Chamber members that are non-profit are $20 for one date and $60 for the three days. Non-members are $30 for one day and $90 for three days.
More information is available at the chamber.
