Street Fair invites families to take a stroll and enjoy community offerings


The second annual Explore Downtown Tigard Street Fair on Saturday featured a little something for everyone.

Families enjoyed carnival games, checking out street vendors’ wares, decorating the sidewalk with chalk sketches, arts and crafts and a selection of food. The event also included an array of performances by U.S. West Coast Taekwondo, Westside Dance and Gymnastics Academy and Mask and Mirror Community Theatre as well as live music from The Shwing Daddies and the Joel Stevens Trio.

The festivities highlighted downtown businesses and activities and provided an opportunity for residents to discover what’s going on in the heart of Tigard.
