Hillfest Seeks Buskers

Hillfest is seeking musicians/performers who would like to arrange to busk, stationed farther down the street from the stage area.

If you don’t already know, this is the second year of Hillfest and will happen on Saturday, Sept. 17. Buskers will be able to perform between 3 and 7 p.m. Content of performance is open but performers should be aware that families will be present and Hillfest reserves the right to pull the plug if warranted.

If you happen to be an interested party, please contact Briana at 218.340.6333.

Hillfest 2010: Livin’ in the Hillside

The Hillside community welcomes its friends and neighbors to the first annual Hillfest, a new festival celebrating the Hillside. Hillfest will be held Saturday, Sept. 18, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the intersection of N. Sixth Ave. E. & Fourth St.

With live music, food, local art and craft vendors, a wealth of children’s activities, community information, and the revival of the Whole Foods Co-op Tofu Toss, it’s going to be a great day in the Hillside. Admission is free, and everyone is invited!

Participants are encouraged to walk or bike to Hillfest, though free parking will be available in the St. Mary’s ramp at 320 E. Fourth St. Kids will have the opportunity to decorate their bikes before a bike rodeo by the Duluth Police Department, try their luck on the climbing wall, and listen to music and stories from local artists.

Live music on the main stage will include Treetop Tango, 2one8, and others. The Whole Foods’ Tofu Toss is a ridiculously fun event, with all proceeds donated to East Hillside Patch’s Mind 2 Mind program. Tofu Toss registration forms are available at Whole Foods Co-op.

Hillfest is still accepting vendor registration. Registration is only $10, so it’s a great way to sell your wares and promote your business or organization.
