Celebrate summer this Saturday, July 12, 2014 when N Mississippi Avenue (N Fremont to N Skidmore) in Portland turns into a family friendly free-for-all. Admission to walk along the avenue is free with ample opportunities to purchase food, drink, crafts and other local wares from over 200 vendors.
Many vendors will be in full swing for those looking to cool off from the summer heat. For example, StormBreaker Brewery located at the intersection of N Beech Avenue and N Mississippi Avenue will have a DJ spinning some records in their beer garden, extra beer pouring stations and a booth right outside of the brewery selling merchandise. Also, they donated a couple of kegs to the festival beer garden.
Saunter around the fair's six stages and sample over 40 bands. If possible, stop by the Fremont Stage presented by Por Que No & Ecliptic Brewing from 6:15pm to 7:00pm and catch a set by The Beauty. It's a treat you won't want to miss. Other acts include Holiday Friends, Atomic Arts Theater, URAL THOMAS & THE PAIN, Tiburones, Norman Sylvester Band, THANKS, Ghost Ease, Genders, Sneakin Out, Three for Silver, Ryan Sollee (of Builders and Butchers & Friends), The We Shared Milk.
The fun starts at 10am in the morning and continues until 9pm that evening. If possible, consider using public transportation as getting around this area via car could be tricky. For additional information about the Mississippi Avenue Street Fair log on here. Also, walk up volunteers are welcomed for those who would like to give back while having fun, and pick up a few goodies along the way.
