19th Annual Discover Amherst Street Festival

In recent years, Amherst Street has emerged from its sleepy cocoon to contribute to the rebirth of the city. While still in need of a few new pick-me-ups, which appear to be on the way, Amherst Street should be considered the character of the undeterred turtle in the epic race between The Tortoise and The Hare. Along the way towards winning the race, there might have been a few setbacks, but Amherst Street, set in historic Black Rock, is incredibly resilient and will continue to come back fighting until it reaches the finish line.

One of the best way to keep the momentum fresh and strong in a community, is to rally behind it. The easiest way to do that is to not only support the businesses, but to engage in the celebrations. Now in its 19th year, the Discover Amherst Street Festival has been opening people’s eyes to the wonders of the street – from the galleries to the restaurants to the historic achievements. It’s a festival for the entire family to enjoy, complete with an old school pie baking contest, a parade, and a classic car show. 

All of the festivities take place from 11am to 6pm, giving revelers an entire day to enjoy the fun.
