Community Event

The Local First Street Party, presented by Founders Brewing Co., is returning for its 13th year. Get ready to dance, eat, drink, listen, and create at this celebration of local food, music, and beer. This year will feature a wide array of talented Michigan musicians and performers on the Celebration! Cinema stage. Whether you like electronic, folk, hip hop, blues or indie, the Street Party has something for everyone. Hungry? Food trucks will be serving up their finest fare. Thirsty? Founders will be pouring brews all night. Crafty? Recycled art and sidewalk chalk are fun for all ages. See who's coming on Facebook

New this Year

This year, and thanks to the generous gift of our community partners, we have the opportunity to double any donations given on the day of the event. Any funds donated to the Local First Educational Foundation will be matched. We're also excited to have AM Yoga to help kick off the party with some pre-party stretching at 2:30!
