Livermore hosting annual Street Fest

Downtown event to feature new wine and beer pop-ups

The Livermore Downtown Street Fest happening next weekend is old and it's new. Although this is the 28th year for the event, it is launching a new winery and brewery experience -- Pop Up Wine Lounges and Pop Up Tap Rooms are replacing previous tasting stations.

The new concept aims for a more relaxed, interactive and educational experience, according to the organizers, giving participants more time to meet and talk to local winemakers and brewers.

The street fest is expected to draw as many as 100,000 people over in two days, May 18-19, stretching along First Street from M Street to Maple. More than 175 artisans and crafters will showcase their creations, and downtown boutique shops are stocking up on unique specialty items. Second Street will have children's activities from J to N Street. Eateries will also have interactive attractions.

Livermore Downtown Inc. is hosting the event, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday (May 18) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday (May 19) with shorter hours for the pop-ups, which open at noon.

For more information or to buy tickets for the Pop Up experiences, go to www.livermoredowntown.com. Tickets are $10, which includes an official wine or beer glass.

The Street Fest and parking outside the event are free.
