Makers’ Faire
behind the scenes on 42nd Avenue
August 23, 2014

Dear Beaumont-Wilshire Neighbors,

This year’s 42nd Avenue signature event is a Makers’ Faire. Although we will continue the spirit of the Street Fair with entertainment, a beer garden, foots ball, and a bouncy house, this year will emphasize the identity of our district: making goods and providing services.

Like the guilds of old, the makers on 42nd Avenue serve their community by honoring their craft. Whether its furniture, signs, charcuterie, bread, pastries, metal objects, printed material, fancy cars, healthy teeth, bikes, ice cream, employment, beverages, a place to gather, or obedient dogs, making good and services is our commonality.

From noon to 6 p.m., Faire participants can go behind the scenes, into businesses to meet the owners and staff. Get an insider’s view of businesses through tours, classes, contests, giveaways, and tastings. Our scavenger hunt can qualify you for prize drawings. As a business district, we are excited to share with our neighbors the view from the other side of the counter.

Between activities, enjoy amazing live music and booths.

12-2 PM:     James Clem: Oldtimy country and blues.

2-4 PM:          BrassRoots Movement:  New Orleans Stand Up Brass Band.

4-6 PM:          Jalani and the Secret Five Gospel and Soul.
