ST. GEORGE — “George, Streetfest on Main” has announced its cooperation with the City of St. George’s Fourth of July Celebration in hosting of the Parade Float Preview, Friday from 6-10 p.m. With First Friday falling one day before July 4, residents will experience back-to-back celebrations starting with George, Streetfest Friday evening then moving to Vernon Worthen Park all day Saturday.
Beginning Friday, George, Streetfest on Main will expand onto Tabernacle Street between the roundabout and 100 East, and the Zion Brewing Company Jazz Garden will expand to fill the full courtyard at Ancestor Square.
Friday night’s concert will feature Sego, Golden Sun and Morning Pretty.
Estimated attendance in June was 2,500, and event organizers have been working to expand the event to accommodate all who wish to attend.
“We are thrilled at the community’s reception and support of this event,” Amy Thorpe, Jazz Garden manager, said.
Farmers market vendors who were originally located in the courtyard will now join the street market on Main and Tabernacle Streets offering room for bistro tables, chairs, new food options and more serving areas in the Jazz Garden.
