      42nd Avenue Street Fair to Take Place, Sunday, August 26th from 12pm to 5pm

      Portland OR – Plans are well underway for the 3rd annual 42nd Avenue Street Fair. A celebration of the growing 42nd Avenue Business District, this year’s fair promises to be the best yet! The Street Fair will be centered around NE 42nd Avenue and NE Alberta Court and take place from 12pm to 5pm on Sunday, August 26th. Kids on bikes and pets in costumes are invited to join in the parade, which kicks off the event, leaving from NE Killingsworth at 12pm. Awards for best bike decorations and pet costumes will follow!

      The event will also feature vendor booths, kids’ activities, a beer garden and the Classic Car Cruise-in for a Cure. Jelani & The Secret Five, an alternative gospel band with an attitude, will be among the musical acts featured on the stage. Kids’ activities will include an ice cream walk every ½ hour between 1pm and 4:30pm, a spinning wheel with prizes, and classic children’s games.

      The Street Fair is brought to you by the 42nd Avenue Business Association. Local business owners and employees spend countless volunteer hours planning the event as a way to give back to their community. The event planning committee members come from businesses including: Delphina’s Bakery, Straight Path Inc, Rocket Pizza, Roses Ice Cream, MeRae’s Hair Design, The Spare Room, Porthaven Health Care Center, Doggy Business and Magnetic North. The event is also sponsored by Morel Ink and The Spare Room.

      In addition to providing fun and entertainment for the whole family, the 42nd Avenue Business Association sees the Fair as a way to increase community connections. This year the new Cully Community Market and the recently adopted 42nd Avenue Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative will both be a part of the parade and event. Neighborhood associations, local schools and non-profits are all invited to get involved! With so many businesses and organizations represented, the Fair should offer something for everyone. So mark your calendars and plan to head to NE 42nd Avenue on the last Sunday in August!
      The 42nd Avenue Business Association is a group of business owners and managers working and networking together to make the commercial corridor between Skidmore & Killingsworth on 42nd Avenue a comfortable, family friendly and lively place to be!
