Entertaining at Streets Alive!
Streets Alive! boasts a variety of great entertainment - music, dance, magic, balloon art, sports demonstrations, and join in fitness activity, to name just a few.
Performing at Streets Alive! is an opportunity to be a visible part of a free event open to the entire community of Lincoln. Over the years, our attendance has grown to an average of 4,000 including more than 100 exhibitors and entertainers. Our 2016 event saw over 5,000 participants. If you are interested in performing at the 2017 festival, apply on line now or contact Ashley Carlson for more information.
We move the festival around the city every two years. The 2017 Streets Alive! will be hosted by the Belmont neighborhood which will have two miles of streets blocked off from traffic so visitors can walk stroll, skate, bike - any kind of human powered travel along the festival route. We have both street artists and stage artists.
Bring people to you. After May 15, you will be able to download promotional materials to let people know you will be Streets Alive!
Route Maps, When to Arrive
Entertainers will have 15 minutes before their performance and 15 minutes after their performance to set up and take down. The stages will be ready, so both should be minimal. Help will be available at volunteer information booths if you need assistance loading and unloading. There are always maps with entertainer locations and performance times for both entertainers and visitors.
Where to Park
The streets following the route will be closed to traffic and parking the day of the event. In order to accommodate everyone in the area on the day of the event, there will be a variety of parking lots available in the vicinity of the route. Parking location information and street closures will be listed on our FAQ page when the 2017 route is set.
