4th Annual 2017 Hilltop Street Fair

This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever and is themed as “Unity Through Diversity”.  

Again it will be located between S. 9th & MLK Way S. and S. 13th & MLK Way S.  Family-friendly activities, food,  games, and music will be featured in People’s Park all day from 11 am to 7 pm.  Varied food will be available from vendors, as well as arts and crafts. 

Newly added this year will be two crowd-pleasers:  a quilt show which symbolizes the theme of “Unity Through Diversity”, as well as a locally-produced film festival.  Music will be continuous on four stages.  Back by popular demand, a fashion show will feature clothing from local merchants.  Central Latino will present a procession with costumed representations from 21 Latin cultural empires.  Community Health Care will offer free wellness and dental exams.   Plans for a car show sponsored by the The Blacktop Rebels Car Club are well underway with more car entries welcome.
