On Sunday, vintage knickknacks, rustic patio furniture and unique treasures will replace the cars on Downtown Lodi streets as the Lodi Street Faire gets underway.
On May 5, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., 10 square blocks will be taken up for the Street Faire, which is sponsored by the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce. More than 75,000 residents and visitors attend this bi-annual event.
More than 600 venders travel from throughout California to participate in the Faire, selling antiques, arts and crafts and commercial items. While shopping for treasures, visitors can satisfy their appetite with food from 25 vendors, from hamburgers, to hot dogs, sausages and pizzas. Mexican, Chinese and Filipino dishes are also available for those craving a more international fare. Deep fried alligator is even on the menu.
