Venture out to Washington Square in Holland Saturday, August 20 from 3-9 PM for the 3rd annual Local First Lakeshore Street Party presented by New Holland Brewing! The event will feature an array of local music, food, beer and an outdoor artists' market. Celebrate local living in West Michigan with your family, friends, and the Local First team.

You don’t want to miss the chance to hear Erick Picardo’s drumming as the Street Party kicks off. Second to perform, Vinylicious will be doing cover performances of current hits and classic rock. Brad Vredevoogd from Vinylicious says they are returning to the Street Party because, “We love the opportunity to connect with parts of the community we may not normally see at standard bar gigs. Plus, the diversity of the acts, food and activities that Local First brings together are just amazing to explore.”

Also at this year’s Street Party will be David Dzuiban providing you with bluegrass folk, followed by Mark Harrell with indie folk. Lakeshore Street Party favorite Grupo Super Nova will be returning to headline beginning at 7:30 with Cumbia Romantica and Bachata!

Audacious Hoops will be returning to the Lakeshore Street Party with hoola hoops to share! The Street Party is a celebration welcome to all ages; free face painting and sidewalk chalk art are sure to put a smile on the kid’s faces. New this year is an outdoor pop-up market with local goodies. Herrick District Library Book Bike will also be site – sign up for a library card and check out books! Ottawa Food Policy Council will have information on food access and Petal Cab will give out free rides. 

Don’t miss out on the various flavors of the Lakeshore Street Party featuring Ray the Tamale King, Just Enjoy Bakery, Anna’s House and more! Enjoy beer by New Holland Brewing while you stroll through the Lakeshore Street Party. Local favorite and family-owned business, Anna’s House recently opened their 4th location in Holland. Look forward to experiencing Anna’s House’s mission, “Saving the World from an Ordinary Breakfast,” with the delectable treats at the Street Party. Danea Mather with Anna’s House believes, “if we want our communities to truly thrive, Local needs to be First, which is why Anna’s House is interested in organizations that support the same.” The vendors are bringing lots for you and the family to try this weekend.

Stop by Washington Square this weekend for a day filled with delicious refreshments, music and entertainment, and fun for everyone. The 3rd annual Local First Lakeshore Street Party is from 3-9PM on Saturday, August 20.
