20th Annual Rolando Street Fair!
The 20th Rolando Street Fair was Sunday, March 20th, 2016. It's hard to believe but it was twenty years ago that our community began this wonderful and fun-filled event! The Fair has grown over the years and now takes up an entire city block on Rolando Blvd. from El Cajon Blvd. to Solita Ave. More than 100 vendors offer goods and services, a kid's zone keeps the young (and young at heart) spinning, twirling, or bouncing, tons of delicious food are available from a wide variety of food booths and food trucks, and our music lineup has been a big hit every year (dancing often breaks out). There is a group of selfless volunteers that bring every Fair into existence and this year was no exception (see below). THANK YOU to all our wonderful volunteers for helping to create our best Fair ever! Please contact the RCC if you would like to help next year! Please visit our Street Fair page for photos!
