Friends, Family, Community and the Magic of Live Music
For three or four hours, seven summertime friday evenings, life is just like it should be. Babies don’t cry, dogs don’t bark, and wise elders feel nineteen again. The Muse visits the musicians pretty much every night and dances when the spirit moves her. We don’t know why this all happens here, we’re just glad it does.
Let’s Get this Party Started! Want to high-step it to the Street Faire with MarchFourth? If so, join us at the corner of Main and Pine at 6:15 and we’ll follow the band to the Steinbaugh. South on Main and right between Bittersweet and Little Horse. Dress up, have fun, but please stay out of the street until it is officially closed, and no alcohol allowed! Schedule: Main Street closure 6:15. Parade starts at 6:25.
Introducing the DBA’s new Token Program. These Street Faire drink tokens will get you adult beverages at the Faire, but you can also use them anytime for bargains at the following Downtown Merchants. For those of you who attend the Faire and don’t drink, consider supporting the Faire by buying a token or two and using them at these fine establishments. See you Downtown!
The Street Faire runs 5 to 10pm. Music is 6:30 to 9ish — rain or shine.
There is excellent food, cold drinks, lots of children’s activities, quality arts, crafts, sundries,
and, because of our awesome sponsors, this event is FREE!
Rules? We don’t need no stinking rules! Well, actually we do, for courtesy and legal reasons.
PLEASE do not bring alcohol to the Faire—it is illegal and just not faire to the folks bringing you this free event
PLEASE do not carry alcohol outside the Faire boundaries—this is also illegal
PLEASE do not bring your own chairs or blankets anywhere under the tents or under the pavilion
PLEASE park in legal spaces only or you will get towed
PLEASE be courteous of our neighbors! Stay out of yards and gardens and do not leave trash or bodily fluids
The Street Faire is a NO SMOKING event
Q: Can I bring food to the Faire?
A: Yes, but why not try a Downtown restaurant or some of the excellent Faire cuisine?
Q: Can I bring alcohol to the Faire?
A: Absolutely not.
Q: Can I bring my dog to the Faire?
A: Due to the crowd size and potentially hot weather, we do not feel the Faire is a good place for your dog. That said, it is not illegal. They must be able to handle crowds and you must take very good care of them—dogs are not allowed under the tents or the pavilion.
Q: Can I bring folding chairs to the Faire?
A: Yes, but the chairs CANNOT be set up under the tents or the pavilion
Q: Where is First Aid?
A: Look for the First Aid booth staffed by the Louisville Fire Department
You can park in any legal space, but PLEASE be courteous to our neighbors:
Do not park in restaurant lots unless you are eating there
