The 15th Annual Belmont Street Fair takes place Saturday, September 10, 2011 from noon until 8pm. The fair extends from 20th to 48th on Southeast Belmont, with car free blocks from 33rd to 37th.
Sponsored by the Belmont Area Business Association and the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association, the fair features over 150 craft booths, multiple music stages, food vendors, and activities for the kids. Free shuttles take visitors to various stops the entire stretch of the festival from 20th to 48th.
This is one of my favorite Portland street fairs. Car free streets make it more pleasant than the Hawthorne Street Fair. Most of the fair activities take place within a few car free blocks between SE 34th and 37th, so it’s easy to take in the whole thing. And the Belmont Street Fair is not nearly as crowded as the Mississippi Street Fair.
