2011 Belmont Street Fair
KBOO is a proud media partner for the Belmont Street Fair
When: Saturday Septmber 10th, 2011 Noon-8PM
Where: SE Belmont between 33rd and 37th
This year’s Belmont Street Fair promises to be a spectacular event with all the best of past fairs plus some new and exciting twists. Our theme this year is Imagine! Imagine the possibilities of a thriving local community! Imagine…art on every corner…community potluck dinners…great local businesses within walking distance…backyard eggs for all… human powered transport on car free streets…
Belmont Street between 33rd and 37th will be car free once again. As one fair enthusiast said last year, “After you go to this fair, you'll wonder why they don't always shut down SE Belmont to cars/buses between 33rd and 37th…it just feels right.” A free Ecoshuttle will link special events along Belmont between 20th to 48th Avenues.
The Sunnyside Neighborhood Green will return to 34th and Belmont. You’ll find an expanded Kids Fun Center, with activities for kids of all ages, an integrated bouncy house and mini-golf course, and juggling with Do Jump. Be sure to visit the Artist’s Alley, showcasing the work of local artists, and the alternative transportation exposition, which this year will feature cargo bikes.
Local musicians will perform on multiple stages, with a main stage lineup that is sure to please:
· Chazz Funk All Stars (12:00 – 12:45 pm)
· Dusu Mali (1:00 – 2:00 pm)
· Sarah Moon & The Night Sky (2:15 – 3:15 pm)
· Sweet Juice (3:30 – 5:00 pm)
· Brothers of the Baladi (5:15 – 6:15 pm)
· Saloon Ensemble - featuring members of March Forth Marching Band (6:30 – 8 pm)
The Fair will take place Saturday, Sept. 10, from Noon to 8pm. The fair is a collaboration between the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association and the Belmont Area Business Association, and organizers (Katie from Hall of Records and Tim from SNA) have been working overtime to make this year's fair a fun-filled, car-free community event filled with local artists, musicians, street vendors, and family-friendly activities…and where you can just imagine the possibilities.
