The Evansville Streets Alive Festival, Presented by the Evansville Trails Coalition, is coming to Garvin Park on Sunday, June 3rd, 2018 from 12pm until 5pm. Evansville Streets Alive! is a car-free festival that will close Garvin park to vehicle traffic to create a community space for people to walk, dance, bike, skate, play games, make music and enjoy great fun with family and friends.
Last year’s event attracted a crowd estimated at 6,000 people. There were more than 50 activities, including water zorb balls in the park’s lake, roller skating, surrey bikes for families to ride together, golf cart tours of the Greenway, walk-a-dog booths, a variety of games and dances.
We’re excited that our plans have expanded this year! Streets Alive! is partnering with Bosse Field who is hosting the Evansville Food Truck Festival to celebrate summer’s start and a new beginning for the historic North Main Street neighborhood.
We’ll start with a parade and ribbon-cutting for North Main’s new pedestrian/bicycle path. In keeping with the street’s people-focused design, the parade will be for people walking, skating, riding bicycles and tricycles and unicycles, wagons and wheelchairs and other wheels without motors. Prizes will be awarded for best entries and costumes!
