We know September seems like it’s light-years away; but really, it’s right around the corner. Yes, it’s true — before you know it the pool will be closed, the Hill will be back in session and the kids will be back in school.

So before your September schedule fills up, make sure to mark your calendar for the day that celebrates businesses, schools, restaurants, community organizations, clubs, bars, parks and art in the community: The 17th Street Festival on the the fourth Saturday in September.

This year’s third annual event will take place on Saturday, September 22 from noon until 6 pm, and will include musical performances throughout the afternoon, artist vendors, a pet zone, a kids zone, exposure for non-profit groups and appearances by city officials to celebrate the community and businesses. Moreover, since last year’s event was such a success, this year’s Festival will last two hours longer.

The 17th Street Festival is planned by the Urban Neighborhood Alliance (UNA), which brings businesses and residents together to develop innovative solutions to community challenges. Additional details — including information on becoming a vendor and sponsoring the festival — are available on the organization’s website.

We hope to see you there!

Disclosure: will again be among the sponsors of the 17th Street Festival.
