The South Perry Street Fair is yet another way to experience the hip vibe of this revitalized neighborhood. For one day only, head over to the district for a parade beginning at 10 am, then stay and explore the booths full of vendors and community groups. Live music begins at 1:30 pm and includes awesome local acts Real Life Rockaz, Silver Treason, Dead Serious Lovers, Mama Doll, Water Monster and Marshall McLean. Note that nearby Grant Park will host South Perry Yoga at 8:30 am (free!), and also a children’s fair. Proceeds from the event go to Odyssey Youth Center and Liberty Park Child Development Center.
Sat, July 25, from 10 am-10 pm • Free • Grant Park and along South Perry Street between Ninth and 11th Avenues • bit.ly/SouthPerryStreetFair
