Friends, Family, Community and the Magic of Live Music
For three or four hours, eight 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.
July12 Charlie Musselwhite
With an induction into the Blues Music Hall of Fame, 35 Blues Music Awards (including three wins in 2014!) and 11 Grammy nominations (including a 2014 win!), American electric blues harmonica player and bandleader Charlie Musselwhite has truly earned legendary status as one of blues music’s most important artists. High-Energy, Chicago-style blues will have you dancing the night away.
Hailing from rural Western Colorado, A.J.'s style of playing falls somewhere between the finger picking & slide of Country Roots music, and the groove-based uptempo of Blues and Rock & Roll. In the few short years of his professional career, A.J. has won a number of awards & accolades, and has been called one of the hardest working young musicians on the scene.
The Street Faire runs 5:30–9:30pm. Music is 7:00 to 9:30 — rain or shine. Main acts are onstage at 8:15.
The Street Faire is at the Steinbaugh Pavilion, 824 Front Street.
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. Alcohol sales fund the Faire!
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 my dog 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 located in the library parking lot.
