Hessler Street Fair
From: 2014.05.21 To: 2014.05.22
A community-run arts and music festival, the Hessler Street Fair started as an annual block party back in the 60’s to raise funds for housing renovation and to help preserve Hessler Road as a residential area (technically, there’s no such place as Hessler Street). Though the annual street festival draws about 10,000 revelers today, its aims have remained more or less the same: “to preserve and maintain the neighborhood”. Highlights include live music from noon to dusk, dynamic capoeira shows, poetry readings, colorful arts and crafts stands as well as food vendors offering ethnic fare and vegetarian delights.
