The 2018 Downtown Hayward Street Party season opens its 19th year on June 21 with bands, the first of three summer car shows, street entertainers, food, and family fun. The event kicks off the series of traditional Thursday night Street Parties including celebrations July 19 and August 16.
On June 21 the Bank of the West Stage will feature the West Coast Blues Society Caravan of All Stars, celebrating the upcoming Hayward/Russell City Blues Festival. Also performing that night will be Shark Punch on the Buffalo BillÕs Stage, and The Royal Deuces on the Bistro Patio Stage. Ruckatan will also play, and DJ Robert Louis will entertain at Car Show Central at the chamber of commerceÕs Main Street Stage.
