Downtown Terre Haute will soon announce plans to revive a century-old tradition -- the Terre Haute Street Fair.
A news conference is planned for July 6 at the Clabber Girl Museum and Bake Shop on the corner of 9th and Wabash to announce revival of the fair.
At the turn of the 20th century, Terre Haute hosted the original Terre Haute Street Fair, which attracted more than 50,000 people to Terre Haute, according to a press release from Downtown Terre Haute.
Now, a century later, Downtown Terre Haute is reviving the street fair during the weekend of Sept. 23-25.
The Terre Haute Street Fair is a combination of some of Terre Haute's popular annual events: Bleemel Days, Crossroads ArtsFest, Cultural Festival, Family Learning Day and ISU's Family Day. In addition to these familiar favorites, Downtown Terre Haute will add fresh ideas and new features to the Street Fair. The Terre Haute Street Fair will be held between 8th and 9th Streets along Cherry Street.
