FREE “Love our Community” Street Fair for 19 North Neighborhoods

19 North: “Creating a safe walkable community for all to enjoy.”

PHOENIX, ARIZONA - 19 North is sponsoring a “Love our Community” street fair on February 11, 2017. This is a free, family-friendly event for everyone living, working and going to school in 19 North. Live music, free bounce houses and activities are planned along with food trucks from 10am-2pm at 8301 N. 19th Ave. A special part of the event begins at 9am: a pre-fair “19th Ave clean-up” effort. The 19 North Alliance invites everyone with a vested interest in this area to help collaborate toward the vision of a safe, walkable destination.

“The ‘Love our Community’ event is really the launch of many more community-promoting events to come,” explains 19 North Chair, Shannon McBride. “We need to experience 19 North as a community to really build community.” She explains further that a big part of the revitalization neighbors are calling for will come with collaboration. The “Love our Community” 19th Avenue Clean-up & Street Fair is an organized and fun way to link arms and be involved in the change this community wants to see.

The 19 North Alliance was born from this vision of collaborating, and the diversity represented is unprecedented. Around the 19 North leadership table sit faith communities, Washington Elementary Schools (WESD), representatives from Councilman Valenzuela’s office, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, The Department of Commerce and Economic Development, City of Phoenix Neighborhood Services & Village Planning, Phoenix Police, local businesses like Abrazo Central Campus, Valley Metro, Beatitudes Campus, Los Compadres, and others as well as several neighborhood associations including State Street, Royal Palm, and Washington Park.
