Media Release: Church Street Fair Celebrates History

For Immediate Release
Church Street Fair Celebrates History

Historic Church Street belongs to the ages of Edmontonians who built our City. Generations of immigrants came to Edmonton and built homes, schools and churches. McCauley and Boyle Street were the areas in which they settled. Come “home” to Church Street and enjoy a taste of the past at the Church Street Fair on Saturday, July 12.

Tour local churches and learn about their histories on Historic Church Street. Come for the choirs! Local artisans and businesses will be on the street – come and see the treasures you can find on and around Church Street. There will be a Senior’s Welcome Centre with lemonade and iced tea provided. Children will find fun up and down the street, with face painters, bouncy castle, playground, and musicians. Later, join us on the street for a family friendly, clean and sober street dance!

Festivities begin at noon on Saturday, July 12. Dance at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fair Central will be on the street in front of Sacred Heart Church.

The Church Street Fair is sponsored by The Friends of Church Street (founded 2012) and McCauley Revitalization/City of Edmonton.
