    Downtown Streetfest - Aug 2018

    Date: August 18, 2018 Time: 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM

    Event Description

    Streetfest is going to the dogs! 

    Are you a dog owner? Dog lover? If so, Downtown Charleston’s Streetfest on August 18 isn’t to be missed! Bring your pup and sign up for a dog race or enter one of our fun contests – dog costumes, silly dog tricks, ugliest dog competition (faces only a parent could love), largest and smallest dogs, and an owner-dog lookalike competition. 

    We’ll also have dog pools for wading, and local vets will be on hand with helpful info. You can visit with Flyaway Greg from Yeager Airport and have a drawing done of your dog by a local artist. We’ll have the Gaming Truck onsite again thanks to Kanawha County Public Library, and West Virginia American Water Co. will have their misting tent set up to cool everyone off. The Carpenter Ants will be providing music for the evening, and we’ll have lots of other fun activities for the whole family too. Stay tuned! 

    It’s FREE, fun, and family-friendly.

    Special thank you to our sponsors: Title Sponsor City National Bank and Supporting Sponsors Spriggs Distributing Company, Bud Light, Hendrickson & Long, AARP, GAI Consultants, City of Charleston, Kanawha County Public Library, Rock 105/The Mix, and Tony The Tailor.

    Capitol Street will close from 2:00 – 10:00 pm on August 18.

    Our last Downtown Streetfest block party of the year will be Saturday, Sept. 15.
