The Barret Avenue corridor of unique and interesting businesses has been steadily growing over the last few years, producing one of Louisville’s best shop-local zones. From affordable thrift stories like Fat Rabbit, to eccentric shops like Unothodox, to a bar that also has a craft shopping element in ShopBar, that stretch of a few blocks is a fun time on any day of the week.
But, the Barret Avenue Block Party takes things up a notch. On Saturday, July 15 from noon to 9 p.m., the Block Party will feature food trucks, local vendors, a dunk tank, a DJ and local music. The event — which will take place between Highland and Winter on Barret — will see ShopBar providing to-go alcohol, and the food trucks that will be there are Bamba Eggroll Co., Rolling Tacos, Mr. G-pleta, Con Aji y Cafe and Hibachi 2 Go.
Live music from Victoria, Lacey Guthrie & Katie Peabody will start at 8 p.m. ($10 suggested donation).
