Mira Mesa Street Fair 2015: The 17th annual Mira Mesa Street Fair will be held on September 19, 2015, 10am to 5pm, on Camino Ruiz from Mira Mesa Blvd. to New Salem Street. Enjoy entertainment on two stages, international food, a carnival, children’s activities, and – for thirsty adults age 21 & up – a beer garden near the food court. Learn about Mira Mesa past and present at the “big top” information tent with displays and volunteers from the Mira Mesa Town Council, Recreation Council, and Community Planning Group. Buy a raffle ticket from MMTC to win the television displayed in the beer garden. Meet Miss Mira Mesa and Miss Teen Mira Mesa!
Browse the crafters and other vendors’ booths to shop for something special, and visit the displays by community groups, schools, churches, businesses, and military to find out about things to do, places to go, and people to get acquainted with in Mira Mesa. See an armored truck with machine gun, or climb to the top of a giant earth mover for a bird’s eye view of the Street Fair below you!

Mira Mesa Street Fair History
The first Mira Mesa Street Fair was organized by the Mira Mesa Town Council in 1999 and has now become a regular annual event on the last Saturday in September. The Mira Mesa Street Fair is completely organized and hosted by community volunteers. It has quickly earned a reputation as one of the best 'community fairs' in the county. The Street Fair committee is dedicated to maintaining the community atmosphere and minimizing the commercialization that has come with growth of many of the other events held around the county.
The Street Fair is held on Camino Ruiz, which is the North/South street next to the Mira Mesa Branch Library, and extends the entire block from New Salem to Mira Mesa Blvd. (Map). Enjoy a fun filled festival atmosphere that is the perfect mix of entertainment, food and exhibitors. Displays include Arts & Crafts vendors, local businesses and civic groups. Visit the Kid’s Zone and 2 community stages.
