Event Summary
This vibrant, friendly, tree-lined neighborhood is conveniently located between San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. The city’s rich history is reflected in its pleasant downtown, which serves as the shopping core for this affluent area. Our Sidewalk Fall Art Stroll celebrates its 23rd year with artists lining the sidewalks of Santa Cruz Avenue at El Camino Real. Spaces are 4 ft. deep x 15 ft. long. No tents, but market umbrellas are welcome. There isn't a street closure for this event; artist and crafter spaces line the sidewalk at the curb with shoppers walking between artisans and merchants. Our sidewalk events are laid back with downtown shoppers as our customers. There is no competition with sponsor/food booths or stages giving the patron more time and space to visit with the artisans. The 15-foot length (single booth) allows for more frontage for your work to be viewed both from the sidewalk by patrons and the street by passing vehicles. No security or electricity. 60 artist spaces.
