Mother’s Day is around the corner and spring is in the air. That means it’s time to get ready for the annual Park Street Spring Festival!
Located on Alameda’s historic Park Street, between Encinal Avenue and Lincoln Avenue, weekend activities include an exciting mix of arts & crafts vendors, live music, food vendors, beer & wine sales, and a special kids’ area. Event hours are 10:00am to 6:00pm both days.
The annual Park Street Spring Festival has become a Mother’s Day weekend tradition in Alameda. With over 150 art and craft vendors and plenty of shops, the street festival is a perfect place to find a gift for Mom. Or maybe you would like to treat Mom to a mimosa and brunch at one of the district’s eateries.
The Park Street Spring Festival is fun for the whole family:
Arts & Crafts…
Stroll among 150 arts and craft booths with items ranging from ceramics and metal art to paintings, photography, wood crafts, toys, handbags, clothing, jewelry, and more.
