Downtown StreetFest & Fireworks | Oct. 9, 2021


UPDATE: Due to concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and because of the virus’ financial impact on local businesses, the Downtown StreetFest & Fireworks Festival has been cancelled for 2020. Unfortunately, the festival relies on local businesses to help with costs each year.  The new date is October 9, 2021.

Downtown StreetFest & Fireworks is a signature event for Sanford that draws thousands to downtown to celebrate with music, performances, vendors, brews, and food.

However, with our community’s extremely busy spring and because Easter would conflict with the event every few years, the festival committee has decided to move the event to the fall.

NEW DATE: Starting in 2020, Downtown StreetFest & Fireworks will take place on the second Saturday of each October. Everything else about the festival will remain the same: music, food trucks, entertainment, local businesses, and fireworks for all to enjoy.

When: Saturday, October 10, 2020 starting at noon. Fireworks will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m.

Where: The block of downtown Sanford ringed by Steele Street, Carthage Street, Moore Street, and Wicker Street.

Get involved: Vendors, entertainers, musicians, and food trucks are invited to join the event.
