There is no better way to kick off the summer than at the fabulously eclectic event that is the Highlands Street Fair! The 35th annual fair, June 3 from 10 a.m. ‒ 6 p.m., will bring together the Highland community and lots of other fun-seeking Denver families for a day of music, food and drink, kids’ activities and more.
As one of the fair’s sponsors, Bradford Real Estate will have a booth where fair-goers can sign-up for a raffle for a cruiser bike ‒ or stop the office at 2956 W. 32nd Ave.
“As a proud member of the Highland community for 23 years, we wouldn’t dream of missing the annual fair. It’s a blast,” says Brad Lewis, Bradford Real Estate owner.
Music is always a big part of the Highlands Street Fair and this year is no exception. The line-up at the Main Stage, 32nd Ave. and Julian St., will feature Selasee & The Fafa Family (10:30 a.m.), Ragged Union (1 p.m.) and Whitewater Ramble (4:30 p.m.).
Two additional stages, 32nd Ave and Perry St., will feature a battle-of-the-bands-style play off, with the winners chosen by the audience: Papa Juke vs. John Weeks Band (11:30 a.m.) and Megan Burtt Band vs. Jen Korte and The Loss (2:30 p.m.).
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the other events:
• Bike parade and decoration/costume contest

• Rock-climbing walls and slack-line instruction
• Artisan vendors
• Kid’s mural painting
