Is It Us or Did This Summer Fly By? The Last Street Faire Concert is August 10

Its the end of the Street Faire for this year!

We had a blast and hope you did too! You won’t want to miss our last concert featuring Lee Fields & the Expressions! Fields is a master soul and funk singer and performer who brings the essence of James Brown and his own unique style to the stage. Fields has toured the world with musical legends like Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, O.V Wright, Darrell Banks, and Little Royal. He’s recently acquired new-found popularity with younger audiences too. Whether you’re young or old, you’ll be equally taken with his strong and soulful voice and the great band backing him up.

Catch Opening Act Foxfeather
Founded in Boulder in 2013, Foxfeather is a sultry alt-Americana band with a lyrical base, bolstered by strong blues-rock instrumentals. The band consists of Carly Ricks Smith (lead vocals), Laura Paige Stratton (acoustic/electric guitars, keyboards, vocals), and is often supported by various instrumentalists for a full rock sound.

We want to thank all the hard-working volunteers, generous sponsors, team management and all those people who make the Street Faire such a special, unique community event. We look forward to another great season next year and seeing you all Downtown!
