Lynch's Landing presents the Seventh Annual Get! Downtown Street Festival on September 11th!
On Friday, September 11th from 6-9PM, Main Street will be closed from intersections of 13th Street to 7th Street, welcoming over 10,000 festival goers to the 2015 Get! Downtown Street Festival. As the largest street festival in Lynchburg, Get!Downtown will once again welcome six blocks of downtown businesses, and vendors, artists, crafters, live music and performance on three stages, dancers and street performers, and taste local cuisine all along Main Street.
This year boasts musical performances on each of the three stages with a line up of the MG Experience and DJ Ed at the Community Market Stage; Exodus and Alma Hesson at the 7th Street stage, and WhoaBear, Mystic Alpacas, Blackout, LCCP and Ben Browne on the Sun Trust Stage. Activites on the blocks include skate demos, chalk art, and an arcade trailer, plus a kids zone at the Community Market with magic performances, face-painters, jugglers, and balloon artists. Visit your favorite food trucks at the BBT lot Food Truck Round up, toss your name in for grand giveaways at various vendors, and get to know downtown Lynchburg.
New this year, a shuttle service will be available from the James River Conference Center parking lot to the festival.
