Final summer street party features art, wine and specialty brews
Submitted By the Hayward Chamber of Commerce
Hayward's annual downtown Art, Wine and Specialty Brew Street Party will be celebrated on Saturday, September 17 from noon to 5 p.m. The event, the last of four Hayward summer street parties this year, includes over 80 vendors and offers live bands, an artist fair, hot rod car show, wine and beer gardens, as well as games and activities for kids and adults.
Held on B Street between Foothill and Mission Boulevards, attendees can find plenty of free parking in downtown Hayward, and the event will be served by AC Transit and accessible from the Hayward BART station.
Entertainment on several stages will be provided by the salsa band Lava, party bands Third Sol and En Vivo, and the Hayward High School Marching Band. Entertainer Alan the Amazing will be on hand, as will face-painters, pony rides and fire engines. More than 125 hot rods and classics are expected for the Vic Hubbard Car Show along Main Street, including Berkeley Farms' famous "Moo Mobile."
Newman Park at the corner of B Street and Mission Boulevard will be turned into a wine garden in which various wineries will serve tastes from their vineyards. Local artists will display their works in the wine garden as well as on the block of B Street between Mission Boulevard and Watkins Street. The street party will dovetail with the Hayward Farmer's Market, held near City Hall Plaza that morning.
"Hayward street parties have been bringing families to our city center to celebrate the summer for 12 years," said Kim Huggett, president of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. "These free events are part of a great Hayward tradition of community celebrations that appeal to all ages."
The series is made possible through the cooperation of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce, the City of Hayward, and the Downtown Business Improvement Area. The DBIA is a consortium of businesses that work together to make the downtown area clean and safe and a destination for shopping, dining, entertainment and the arts.
Join in the party one more time and enjoy a great day in downtown Hayward!
