3. 33rd Street Fair (click for full event details)
33rd Street is on the verge of up-and-coming neighborhood status, so what better time for an end-of-summer Street Fair? The street fair will feature a fire performance artist, activities for kids, buskers and musical entertainment (including The Chickadees), and vendors of jewellery, hats, bags, collectibles, antiques and more.
Head over to 33rd Street and grab some delicious baking from Christie's Mayfair Bakery, do some vintage shopping at Better Off Duds, sample a Yummtruck waffle (see photo below), peruse the furniture and housewares at 2nd Chance thrift store, pick up some antique treasures and a cup of coffee at Funk's Furniture/Back to Coffee Beans, and finish off with dinner at the Ricebowl (Saturday is their last day of business).
