I live in a small city. I'm far from an accomplished street photographer but these are two things that I've found help.

Public events usually provide a "target rich environment" of people who are present by choice, are predisposed to enjoy themselves, and are often not averse to being photographed.

When the subject is aware of the camera, the second applies whether it's a public event or not. Projecting a friendly (or at least neutral) attitude may somewhat negate a subject's reluctance to be photographed.
