Ojai Day is an annual downtown street fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 20, 2018, hosted by the Recreation Department but it’s not your ordinary street fair – it’s a cultural explosion bursting with art, food, spiritual incantations, multi-ethnic celebrations and good old fashion fun and games. Ojai Day offers a little something for everyone and tops it off with Ojai’s unique character.
Over 100 vendors, local original art and jewelry, dance performances, great food, kids' activities, crafts demonstrations, health, wellness and spiritual demonstrations and much more. The Lions Club Beer and Wine Garden will be open too.
The event was originally conceived in 1917, took a hiatus in the 1920’s and has been back with a vengeance since 1993. It’s grown tremendously and has become one of the most popular events in Ojai. The event itself celebrates life, culture and the arts.
Ojai Day was first celebrated in the 1920's after glass magnate Edward Libbey offered to finance the construction of the downtown Arcade, present day Libbey Park and the post office with its 65-foot bell tower. Ojai's most prominent citizens decided to host a city wide celebration to show their appreciation to Libbey. Thus, Ojai Day was born.
The name Ojai comes from the Chumash language and means “The Moon” or “Bird’s Nest.”
Admission and parking are FREE! Visit www.ojaiday.com for more information.
