Here's what the Barlow has been waiting for;
The Grand Opening celebration of The Barlow on
November 2, 2013 from 4:00 - 9:00pm.
The Grand Opening will take the shape of a street fair with artisan and food vendors lining the streets of McKinley Avenue and live music from Sol Horizon, The Louies, and the Blane Lyon Band featuring Zap Mama. Additional entertainment and surprises will be announced as we solidify involvement.
Street Closure. Vendor booths will line McKinley Street, leaving the sidewalk and space in front of businesses open to pedestrian traffic. McKinley Street will be closed after 2pm the day of the event and any cars remaining on the street after 2pm will be towed. The Street Fair management team will give ample warning to those parked on McKinley in the hours before the event through signs and flyer distribution.
Parking for the Street Fair will be on a first come, first served basis. We don't anticipate any issues with congestion, given our ample parking on campus and surrounding streets.
Safety First. We have contracted with a highly professional and well-trusted security team to oversee the event and ensure the safety and enjoyment of all attendees.
The Barlow Street Fair is free and open to the public.
