Union Street is usually a pretty quiet place, a very cool neighborhood business district lined with popular boutiques, art galleries, cafes and bars. People tend to chat comfortably while dining at outside tables set up by restaurants — whether long-time favorites, or brand new to the neighborhood.
That all changes this weekend, when the 41st Annual Union Street Music Festival takes place. This year’s event will have live bands performing in small entertainment areas throughout the site. Five different genres will be featured: Jazz, Blues, Country, Bluegrass and Local Bands.
The Festival will also include the traditional things that have made this event a stand out over the years, including Arts and Craft Exhibitors, unique Sponsors, Festive Food Vendors and Community Groups. The Festival will also feature full pours of tasty beers and fine wines in the beverage gardens found throughout the site.
The Festival takes place this Saturday and Sunday, from 10 AM to 6 PM both days. It all happens on Union Street, between Gough and Fillmore.
