Downtowners prep for 46th Annual Street Fair

BISMARCK, N.D. - This weekend will mark the 46th annual Street Fair in downtown Bismarck.

There are about 180 vendors this year. Organizer Dawn Kopp says there's still room for a couple more if people would like to join. Booths will be open starting at 10 a.m. Friday, however streets will be shut down beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Kopp says one of the new features this year is a beer garden, which hasn't been at the street fair in more than a decade.

“It's very exciting to come out and just have this wonderful strong community event be a part of a large gathering and bringing people together and I think that's what people are looking for the sense of community,” Kopp said.

Vendors will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.
