The 17th Street Festival now draws thousands of people to celebrate the diversity of 17th Street’s restaurants, retailers, services, and institutions.  The festival features 100 vendors, with more than 60 artists displaying everything from fine art to jewelry, ceramics to crafts, and every creative item in between.  Other vendors include area nonprofit organizations, politicians, and local businesses. The kids zone has activities for children, including a large slide, face painting, snow cones, soccer, and games throughout the day.  And there is music throughout the day roving the entire festival site – a true community event!

The 17th Street Festival is very expensive to produce, and we could not organize this event in public space without sponsors.  Thank you!
