Just a reminder, there is no Street Faire on August 4, in support of First Friday Art Walk. But August 11 is the last Street Faire of the year and it promises to be a good one as we bring back Colorado’s favorite band, Firefall.

Their timeless tunes and great musicianship make everybody happy. So join us for a fond farewell to this season’s Street Faire and sing along to familiar songs with a few thousand of your closest friends.

Many thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors hard-working crew and of course, you the audience, who continue to support the Faire year after year and have made it a cornerstone of the Louisville community.

We’ll see you all next year.
