It’s time once again for one of the quirkiest and home-town events in the Valley, the Glen Ellen Street Fair, to be held in downtown Glen Ellen on Sunday, Oct. 11, where they will block off Arnold Drive and have a good old-fashioned street fair. The day kicks off with a parade that will feature local firefighters and much more. The theme for this years fair is ‘Glen Aliens” and we’re sure many will attend. There is also a quilting contest and raffle along with over 85 food, beverage, clothing and other unique items. There is also live music, starting at 12 p.m. with the Solcats, followed by Dan Martin and the Noma Rocksteady Band and then it’s T-Luke and the Tight Suits. There is no admission for the fair but it is suggested you walk or bike to the event, as parking will be minimal.
