Come out and join us as we celebrate the 49th anniversary of this fair. The event takes place on Castro Valley Blvd. in front of the Shopping Center. This is the main shopping area in Castro Valley. Advertising is good. Many locals attend this event due to the number of community service booths, local entertainment, and commercial booths containing chamber members. Lower and mid priced items sell best. The Fest does allow a limited number of vendors to sell import items. Show hours are 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Spaces are 10' x 10' and will be on the street and may be left up over Saturday night. Security is provided. Fair hours are 10 am to 6 pm both days.
