A Breakdown of the Orange International Street Fair
It’s finally time for the annual Orange International Street Fair! This event runs on Friday night (5 pm to 10 pm), Saturday (10 am to 10 pm), and Sunday (10 am to 10 pm), but all alcohol sales end every night at 9 pm. This is such a magical event in Old Towne Orange. It brings the community together and brings tourists into our towne! All food and alcohol booths are run by local non-profits and all proceeds go back directly to them. The Handmade Arts and Crafts booths feature local artists, the Community Booth section showcases local non-profits and the causes they support, and the Commercial Section features local companies.
There is just SO much going on during the street fair! We decided to give you a breakdown of some of the food we are most excited about! But click here for a FULL list of food and participants at this year’s Orange International Street Fair!
I’m counting down the seconds until I have a Meatball Sandwich from Italian Street! The bread is filled with meatballs that are smothered in delish marinara sauce. Or if you’re not a meatball fan, you can get the sandwich with sausage instead. What’s your favorite dish from Italian Street? Let us know in the comments!
Polynesian Street is often underrated! This street features some mouth-watering Kalua Pork Sliders! The meal comes with three small sliders, but the buns are filled with sweet pulled pork and the perfect amount of sauteed cabbage! Or if you’re looking for a refreshing way to stay cool, try their Frozen Fruit Bars.
Those are a few of our faves, but of course, there’s Mexican Street (home to the mouth-watering corn on the cobb with all the fixings and my favorite quesadillas!), Australian Street, Ginza Street, Swill and German street (where you’ll find the Brats!), Irish Street, France Street and Danish Street (always a big line for their famous Danish Donuts or Aebleskiver, yum!).
