Are You Ready for the Street Faire!

Hold on to your hats and dancing shoes, the first Street Faire kicks off June 8 with Kyle Hollingsworth.

As a member of acclaimed jam masters, The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop.

Afterall, he’s been doing it for 30 years! And he’s established himself as a versatile music talent on a number of levels within a vast spectrum of musical environments. We’re looking forward to seeing and hearing him Opening Night and seeing all of you down at the Faire!

Introducing the Street Faire Happy Hour!

Get a great start to the evening with our new Street Faire Happy Hour from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. Come on down and get 2 drinks for 1 token (wine and beer only) and enjoy local entertainment.

Did you catch the new Mural behind the stage?

It’s done by students! John Cross, chair of the Art Department at Front Range Community College in Longmont, headed up the production and painting effort, with help of three student interns, Sophia Zanowick, Kait Tonks, and Creed Guidice who are getting art credit for their tremendous effort. Deb Craven, Dean of Students, FRCC, and Blake Welch of Pique Creative created the design and color palette based on this year’s new Street Faire look and logo. Thank you Front Range Community College. Let us know what you think!
