The 2011 m7 Street Fair is March 5th in Uptown Phoenix

Eleven years ago a group of Seventh Avenue Merchants decided to join together to improve their neighborhood. Plagued with crime and blight the Melrose District was struggling to stay alive. Armed with the mission to facilitate safety, community, revitalization and beautification, these pioneering business owners, through the help of the City of Phoenix’s Fight Back Program, partnered with the School of Architecture at Arizona State University to develop a master plan to revitalize the Melrose Curve.

Relying solely on funds generated by grants and the blessings of the surrounding neighborhoods, the Melrose District slowly began to rebuild itself. One year after the Seventh Avenue Merchants Association incorporated, they held a “street fair” to commemorate the building of the first lighted canopies on Seventh Avenue.

Originally consisting of a few six foot tables, a few dozen classic cars and a few hundred people the m7 Street Fair has grown to over 140 booths, food, rides and crafts for the kids, live music, over 200 classic cars, and almost 18,000 visitors. In ten years this award winning event has become one of the most anticipated events of the year! And this year is no different.

Come join the the fun on Saturday, March 5, 2011 from 11am until 5pm
