C-Street LoftWalk#17, BlockParty#1
LOFTWALK: Visit "Artists in their natural habitat," from 1-5pm, all opening their unique, historic C-Street lofts, in support of Culture on C-Street. Commercial Street's ever-growing family of musicians, artists and dancers open their homes in this ticketed, self-guided walking tour of half a dozen lofts.
An AlleyWay ArtParty just west of Boonville offers artistic activities and inviting the community to offer their thoughts on a public art installation in honor of Gary Waldrop, AKA Dr. Tickle, a longtime C-Street artist & business owner.
FREE BLOCKPARTY starts at 4pm at the C-Street City Market Pavilion at Jefferson, filled with bazaar vendors. Square dancing for everyone opens the event at 4pm at the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge Stage. Street performers and hot local music follow into the evening. Ethnic food by Cafe Cusco, with hot or cold beverages or White River Beer provide fuel for the general revelry that continues until sunset. Vendor fees and food & beverage sales will be split between C-Street's City Market, Midtown and Woodland Heights' neighborhood associations to promote living on or nearby Historic C-Street!
This is Commercial Club's annual fundraiser; proceeds fund one year of cultural activities like C-Street City Market operations, expansion of the Uptown public art collection and C-Street's new branding effort.
