Our Town Belfast will host the ninth annual Belfast Street Party WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9TH from 5-10:30 p.m.

There is no admission fee for this outdoors street event, held on High and Church streets, from Main Street to the American Legion Hall in downtown Belfast. There will be music, dancing, performances, bounce houses, carnival rides, food and beverages for purchase, kids’ area with face painting, and much more.

In addition to live acts from Don Nickerson & Country Mist and Middleground, DJs Erik Klausmeyer and Z Lite will keep the dance party going through the night.

The party runs from 5 to 10:30 p.m. in downtown Belfast.

Details follow.

Admission remains free for anyone who wishes to attend, with tickets sold for activities like the climbing wall, bucking bronco, and trackless train. Wristbands are available for unlimited use of the bounce houses and rat race in the brand new children’s area on Church Street, and a $20 wristband buys access to the entire slate of rides and games. The new-in-2015 Church Street area, dedicated for kid-specific fun, will feature DJ Z Lite spinning tunes and keeping the younger crowd going.

The live music will begin at 5:30 p.m. down on the High Street Stage, in front of Belfast City Hall, with Don Nickerson & Country Mist performing until 7 p.m., Middle Ground will take the stage from 7:30-9:30 p.m., and then DJ Erik will finish out the dance party until 10:30 p.m.  Country Mist, one of Maine’s favorite dance bands, will keep your toes tapping with a variety of classic country and popular rock – from Johnny Cash to Jimmy Buffett.  While Middle Ground offers up an energetic blend of all things Rock, Funk, and Reggae. 

In addition to music and rides, attendees can look forward to great food from dozens of local vendors, tons of activities for kids and adults, games, and giveaways by local businesses and nonprofits, as well as an adult beverage area hosted by Darby’s Restaurant.
