Street Faire: Artisans will line Washington, share wares

It’s the event that puts a real feeling of summer festivities in the air around Detroit Lakes — the 13th annual Street Faire at the Lakes is right around the corner and throughout several blocks of downtown.

The two-day event begins Friday, May 31 at 11 a.m.

There will be over 125 artists (40 percent which will be new to the Street Faire this year) and food vendors open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Jewelry, clothing, signs, home and cabin decorations – it’s all being covered at the Street Faire. A theme this year is reclaimed things with lots of fun and funky art and jewelry.

There will also be live, free music from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A beer garden and Bingo will be at the Eagles from 5:30 to 8 p.m., with the Eagles Street Dance from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. “under the stars.”

On Saturday, booths and music will be filling the streets from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Some of the music coming to the Street Faire this year includes Mr. Jack & the Apprentices, Patchouli – Fast Forward Folk, Sarah Morrau with Tim Hoffelt, Tim Eggebraaten, The Fat Cats doing a tribute to rock and roll for the street dance, Island Time Steel Drum Band, The Prairie Doves and Hardwood Groove.

The Wonder Weavers will be doing storytelling and arts and crafts for the kids throughout the faire, and there will of course be the traditional barrel train rides for kids.
