Alderman Ashanti Hamilton said the family friendly festival has consistently grown in scope and fun since it was founded eight years ago. “The Villard Avenue Day Festival offers great opportunities for family fun, for meeting neighbors, and for connecting with the friendly business owners and organizations which help bring commerce to the area,” he said.

The festival has two stages for live music and other performances, and there is plentiful food, games and prizes as well. This year’s event will feature a first-ever Kids Zone Play Area.
