Street Fairs NYC

From May through November, you'll be sure to find a New York festival that will spark your interest.
When partaking in NYC street fairs, prepare yourself for a day of walking, crowds and cash-only vendors. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, keep a close eye on children and avoid bank fees at on-site ATMs by brining cash. In the summer months, bottled water and sunscreen are also a great idea.
