Save the date! The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership is once again hosting the annual StreetFest in downtown Ticonderoga on Saturday, July 30th.
The event will include shopping, sidewalk sales, non-stop live entertainment, arts and crafts, a variety of vendors, great food, a farmers market, and kids activities. Admission to StreetFest is free.
“StreetFest was designed as annual event to attract people to Ticonderoga’s historic Montcalm Street district,” Bob Dedrick, StreetFest Committee Chairperson, said in a statement. “You will not want to miss this event featuring live music all day, wonderful kids activities, sales, and much more. The Ticonderoga Area Farmers Market will join StreetFest on July 30th as well, and will offer local produce, products, and more throughout the day.”
The Fort Ticonderoga Fife & Drum Corps, led by Mike Edson, will be performing throughout the day. They will be joined by visiting corps – all corps will march down Montcalm Street performing individually, then all together in front of Glens Falls National Bank.
Other live music includes Lane Clark & Mike Donahue (blues and country); MaryJo Vontury & Dwynal Smith (country and folk); Ken McAlpine, Jim Gabler, and Chris LaPoint (rock); The Gregson Brothers (60s and 70s); Dan Kershner (country and western); and Brad Peria and Terinna Cook (blues).
Kids activities will consist of face painting, balloons, balloon animals by Penelope the Clown, caricatures, a Sherwood Forest/Robinhood themed game station, horse drawn wagon rides, a bike rodeo with free bike helmets while supplies last, and more.
Merchants and vendors still have time to sign up – registration forms are available at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office at 94 Montcalm Street, Suite 1. The registration deadline is Wednesday, July 20th at 4pm. Forms can also be obtained from www.timainstreet.org.
“We encourage you to support local merchants during StreetFest and throughout the year,” Matthew Courtright, TMSP Coordinator said in a statement. “Take this opportunity to see all they have to offer.”
