The majority of the income used to support FAMA goals is derived from the two street fairs. The City of Tucson (and every tax payer in the City) benefits greatly from these Fairs because FAMA pays for police and security services, fire department services, parking enforcement officers, waste management services, barricade services, etc. The Street Fair brings in thousands of dollars in city taxes, much more in local business income (hotels, restaurants, etc.), and also provides the funding FAMA uses to keep Fourth Avenue a vital portion of Tucson over the rest of the year. The trees along Fourth Avenue, the benches, the trash cans, the sidewalk cleaning, extra security, planters and flowers and Winsett Performance Stage maintenance and much more, are all paid for by FAMA.

FAMA has a long history of benefiting the whole community and each Fair some 30 nonprofit or service organizations are given space at the Fair and allowed to utilize the Fair to raise money and/or distribute information on their causes. It also takes 2000 hours of labor to put on each Fair, 2000 hours that FAMA pays out to other nonprofit groups or directly to those in need for people power to keep the Fairs clean. These FAMA contributions amount to some $70,000 per year that go to other nonprofit/service organizations or directly to those in need.

  • A nice walk down the street with lots of different shops from books to souvenirs to card-reading. Also little cafes and eateries.  more »
  • Fun little stretch of businesses. We found a great bar, Che’s and enjoyed the afternoon there. Lots of excellent people watching!  more »
