Lake Street Pop-ups

Lake Street Summer Pop-ups


Let’s enjoy summer with outdoor movies, tacos, art projects, dancing, and more! This summer we are pairing local artists with the small business community to host a series of unique outdoor events. Stop by with friends or the family to enjoy a casual summer evening of hanging out on the street. You will enjoy activities like learning to screenprint, watching an outdoor movie, celebrating Prince’s legacy with a dance party or helping to create a mosaic for a local business.

Check back regularly for a list of upcoming events or visit our Visit Lake Street Facebook Page.
