The Olde York Street Fair is a Mother’s Day tradition in downtown York. The event takes place in and around Continental Square. This free event features more than 100 vendors of handmade arts and crafts; a Kid’s Fun Block with bounce houses, games, and face painting; plus other entertainment (scroll down below for entertainment schedule).

Food vendors will sell a variety of traditional American festival food as well as original creations. Fifty percent of all food vendor proceeds will go to support local non-profit organizations. Ticket sales in the Kid’s Fun Block will support York City Special Events.

The Olde York Street Fair will again include a Red Cross Bloodmobile located in the 200 block of East Market Street. Please call 800-RED CROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org to register. Walk-ins welcome! Appointments have precedence.
