Cole Valley Fair on September 25, 2011‏

Attention Artists, Vendors, Musicians, and Owners of Unique Cars:

The Cole Valley Improvement Association (CVIA) is pleased to announce that the Cole Valley Fair will be back again for its ninth year on Sunday, September 25, 2011.

The Cole Valley Fair continues to be a charming and well-attended event sponsored by merchants and organizations with outstanding records of community support. The fair features local art and fine crafts, lip-smacking food, live music, a display of historical Cole Valley photographs, a full block of vintage automobiles owned by neighborhood residents, events for children, and more!

If you’re an artist with unique handcrafted work or a food vendor with tasty morsels, we hope you’ll apply for a booth space. The deadline is July 1. Priority will be given to Cole Valley residents, returning vendors, and promising new applicants. (Imported merchandise will not be considered).  We will be accepting some applicants before the deadline date.

We’re also seeking musicians from all genres and styles for one-hour performance slots. Please note that limited amplification will be allowed – see the application form for details. The Cole Valley Fair is a small and intimate street fair where the right sound will attract a lot of attention.

 And, yes, Cars on Cole will be back again this year. Never been to the event?  We look for interesting neighborhood vehicles– whatever that may mean.  It need not be a “show queen”, or vintage, or rare. The range of vehicles in past years has been from a gaggle of Citroen 2CV’s,  British, German, French, Japanese and Italian sports and touring cars, heavy 30-60’s American Iron, Model A to modern Hot Rod.

The fees for resident’s booth spaces have decreased as we’re hoping to attract more local artists. The fees for non-food vendor booths have increased by $10 to help defray the increased cost for City permits and the food booth costs have been reduced to insure delicious fare.

Application forms for vendors and cars are attached (musicians’ application will be available later) and also available online at  and on paper at Postal Chase, 912 Cole Street.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Fair!
