Coast Community Radio presents 1st Ferry Street Friday Block Party

 


Coast Community Radio, the not-for-profit community radio station in the lower Columbia-Pacific region, presents the Ferry Street Friday Block Party on 14th Street between Commercial Street and Marine Drive in Astoria. Join the fun on Friday, July 19 from 2-8 p.m.

Ferry Street Society businesses will host pop-ups featuring local makers, artists, and farmers at their shops from 2-8 p.m. Hosts include Chariot, Doe + Arrow, 4 Seasons Clothing, Street 14 Cafe, Lodestar Goods, Gimre’s Shoes, Purple Cow Toys and Creations Studio & Gallery.

Ferry Street Society is a group of like-minded businesses on the east end of downtown Astoria who want to provide more opportunities to local artists and makers by hosting fun events geared toward their community of supporters. The name “Ferry Street” prevails from a period in Astoria when the Columbia River Ferry docked at the end of 14th Street. This includes the Tourist No.2 which is now docked on Pier 39, Astoria.

The Block Party is a family friendly event with something for everyone. There will be an area for kid's activities including a take-home art project using recycled items, face painting and “lawn” games made for the street. Enjoy BBQ and for adults only, a Wine & Beer Garden. Live music all afternoon includes local DJs and bands - 2 p.m.: The Garbage Man (DJ), 3 p.m.: Rhythm Method, 4 p.m.: Joey Altruda (DJ), 5 p.m.: Holiday Friends, 6 p.m.: Serious River Song Catalogue, 7 p.m.: Midas Diggs & Friends. An after party will be held at Albatross & Co. starting around 8 p.m., and going late, featuring The Woolen Men, a Portland garage pop band.
