The streets of Olde Town Arvada will come to life this summer as residents and visitors alike enjoy music, food and activities during the Second Saturday Street Festivals.

The second annual Second Saturday Street Festivals will be 4:30-10 p.m. June 8, July 13 and Aug. 10.

The festivals will feature live music from Chris Daniels and the Kings, The Wendy Woo Band and The Indulgers.

While listening to local jams, residents will be able to enjoy a variety of food from vendors, beer or wine and go shopping at Olde Town stores and vendors along the street. The events will also feature activities for children.

“Our citizens are always asking us for fun events with top entertainment and a great family atmosphere,” said Second Saturday Coordinator Adam Mueller. “I think the Second Saturday Street Festivals will really have something for everyone. Summer evenings in Colorado often have that relaxing, perfect temperature that draws people outside, and we want to give them a fantastic reason to come enjoy a few hours in Olde Town Arvada.”

Grandview Avenue east of Olde Wadsworth in Olde Town Arvada will be closed for each festival. The street will be gated off to allow for a safe event and to permit the sale of beer and wine on the street.

The festivals are free to attend and tickets to purchase drinks will be sold at locations within the event area.

Parking is also free and attendees can park in the public lots near the Arvada Library, 7525 W. 57th Ave. and Historic Flour Mill, 5590 Olde Wadsworth Blvd.
