The 28th Annual Park Street Art & Wine Faire once again proved to be the “Best Annual Event in Alameda” and continues to be a hometown tradition in our island city. With a weekend attendance close to 100,000 people, lots of friends and families came out to the Park Street Business District to enjoy the afternoon sun along with a fabulous variety of arts & crafts vendors, tasty festival foods, cold beers, lush wines, and two lively children’s areas.
As part of the weekend festivities, there were also two stages with a number of popular Bay Area bands playing classic rock and R&B favorites. Alameda bands Spill the Wine and The Mighty Neptunes also cranked out some great music this year along with the returning favorites.
The Park Street Business Association would like to thank all those who participated in this year’s Park Street Art & Wine Faire – the people who came to enjoy the Faire, the merchants who got into the spirit of the event, and all of our terrific volunteers. We would especially like to recognize the organizations that helped out at the beverage booths: Alameda Chamber of Commerce, Alameda Credit Union, Alameda Eagles #1076, Alameda Elks Lodge #1015, Alameda Sun, Bank of Alameda, Cerda-Zein Real Estate, Gallagher & Lindsey Realtors, Jazzercise, Kiwanis Club of Alameda, OMM Inc & Mason Management, Rotary Club of Alameda, and Wellguard Insurance Solutions.
We’d also like to thank Rock Wall Wine Company for being our exclusive wine vendor again this year. If you didn’t get a chance to taste their premium wines at the street fair, you can visit their new tasting room at Alameda Point where they have stunning views of San Francisco.
We look forward to seeing you at our next street event… the 19th Annual Park Street Classic Car Show will be held on Saturday, October 13. Over 400 vintage cars and classic hotrods will be displayed along Park Street!
