Here’s just another reason why Louisville, Colorado is called America’s Most Livable City. Public entertainment abounds especially in the summertime with a series downtown street fires.. Many are saying this year is the best lineup the Street Faire has ever offered. The annual nine-week Friday night music festival, Louisville Downtown Street Faire, is already off to an excellent start.
This year, the Louisville Downtown Business Association is making some changes to parking restrictions and availability, encouraging visitors to bike to the event with a large bike corral near the pavilion and dedicated parking areas. There is also a dedicated police officer patrolling for parking violators to lessen the parking issues for nearby residents.
The Faire is open each Friday from 5pm to 10pm with the musical headliner taking the stage around 6:30pm. This is the perfect family summer activity in downtown Louisville for free entertainment and a chance to check out some great local businesses. The show goes on rain or shine! Tonight Los Lobos starts playing at 6:30pm and the admission is free!
Here is the remaining musical lineup:
July 11th: Los Lobos: Describing themselves as a mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues, and traditional Spanish and Mexican music, this Grammy award winning East LA band with hit single “La Bamba” is sure to delight.
July 18th: Young Dubliners: This Celtic rock group has just independently released their ninth album. With hundreds of shows to play every year, you can bet that these guys will put you in the dancing mood and rumor has it, there’s a possibility of clogging.
July 25th: The Iguanas: This “Americana” group from New Orleans creates a sound that crosses cultures, eras, styles, and languages heavily infused with the swampy style of New Orleans and considered one of the world’s greatest dance bands.
August 1st: Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express: This prolific rock ‘n’ roll classicist is known for his song, “¡Let Freedom Ring!” With “Mission Express” (named for a bus line that runs through Prophet’s neighborhood), the band plays with a sound inspired by the streets of San Francisco.
August 8th: Samantha Fish: This Kansas City-based Blues Music Award winner creates a sound of her own influenced by the rock classics she grew up with and the contemporary sounds of today. With a soulful voice and a rockin’ guitar, this lady will have you hypnotized.
August 15th: Subdudes: This American roots rock group which played their first show together in New Orleans and decided to become a band after the performance was over is reunited and returning to the Faire to close out with a performance you can’t miss!
Visitors are reminded to be courteous of their neighbors, not to bring outside alcohol to the event, and not to bring blankets or chairs under the pavilion. Otherwise, enjoy this awesome, FREE event and don’t forget to check out some of the wonderful local vendors!
