The Louisville Downtown Business Association presents the Louisville Downtown Street Faire
Friends, Family, Community and the Magic of Live Music
For three or four hours, nine 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.
Be a Vendor at the Street Faire!
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
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: Yes, if they handle crowds well and you take very good care of them—they are not allowed under the tents or the pavilion
Q: Can I bring folding chairs to the Faire?
