If you’re from the Coachella Valley, you might have seen the COD parking lot transformed into rows of vendors of all kinds during the weekends of the fall and winter months. Locals know that’s the COD street fair!

The COD street fair kicked off its 39th season in September! This is the first full year for the street fair since the pandemic struck, so be sure to enjoy and take advantage of it! The fair will be open from September to May on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Remember that the June and September months will only be open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. due to the heat. There are 124 vendors with a wide variety of wares to check out. Everything from apparel, jewelry, food and so much more can be found.
