Street Fair on Treat Avenue August 24, 2008

There was a very successful street fair this past Sunday, the first real big event at 18th Street & Treat, where the Gallery is located. It was hosted by Helen Fawcett, who has a fabric store just several doors down from the Gallery on Treat Avenue.

There were over 12 local independent bands playing at both ends of the block, over 50 arts and crafts booths in between, and lots and lots of visitors having a glorious day in the warm sun.

One of the goals of the event was to just get the word out that we are here and it was really successful for that. I'd estimate between 3,000 - 4,000 people came to visit and listen to the music and visit the booths and storefronts (including our Gallery!).

It was so successful, they have decided to do an event similar to this once a year.

Below are some pics I took throughout the day.

Here is a shot looking down the street:

The next event the Gallery is involved with will be our next "Second Thursday" Open House (we just started these last month) on September 11th, 5-7 pm.
