JUBILEE DAYS 2017: What you need to know about where this weekend’s street fair and parade are happening

The weekend’s getting closer – and here’s what you need to know about the different layout (and street closures) for the Jubilee Days street fair and other events on Saturday and Sunday:

Note that 16th and 17th SW will both be closed between Roxbury and 100th, as will 98th between 15th and 18th, 6 am Saturday morning through about 11 pm Sunday night.

*Street fair and main stage (music lineup here) on 16th
*Food on 98th
*Car show/kids’ area on 17th

On Sunday, the parade closure will be 9 am-1 pm on 16th SW between SW 100th and SW 116th. The parade starts at SW 112th at 11 am and runs north from there – more info here.

And check out the Jubilee Days site for tons more info! Organizers point out that local businesses in particular have stepped up in a BIG way this year, more than ever, so be sure to hang out with them throughout the weekend – we’ll have another event-specific preview on Friday.

  1. That layout makes a lot more sense!

  2. What about NHFD?

  3. The worst idea ever to block 16th ave for jubilee day.
    Jubilee days lacks the organization and coordination to run anything successful! This years jubilee day was lackluster and also managed to cost business owners on 16th ave thousands of dollars!

  4. I dont think so paul. Every place i went into seem have a group of people there. The beer star was packed the locker room was packed the bbq was packed. And for one day out of the year to have hundreds of people walk by places on the strip and get a close up of what is there is to me worth it. Other wise people just drive by and never realy know what white center has to offer. As far as losing 1000’s of dollars i don’t think many places along that strip see that kind of daily sales. But now that more people know whats along the strip there income has a better chance to grow

  5. I saw people in the new restaurants on 16th ave and to me I think it may have helped business owners since people were able to see the new business that are located on 16th ave as they walked the streets, it is very hard to see all the stores when you are driving in a car. I was able to see the new business that are in the white center area.
    It would be nice to see 16th ave clean up even more and with the some of the new stores it is looking a lot better.
    It would be nice to have more of a police presense in the white center area.
    It seemed like the Julibee Day street fair did lack booth where people sell items and did lack food booths/food trucks.
    I think it would be also have been nice to see the locale business who are new to the area to be in the parade also handing out candy or coupons to people or just carrying a sign saying they are happy to be in this area.
    A very long time ago the Jubilee day street fair was located on 15th ave right behind McLendon Hardware Store, which makes a lot more sense to me.
    I did enjoy the car show. I did enjoy not having to hear the loud music from my home at night when the music used to be played by the round bank for the past many years (not this year).

    Nice post! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Different Rob Says:

    I can’t speak for others, but my family and I had an amazing time. I loved that they embraced 16th. We spent $ in many places we haven’t ever been in and we live in and enjoy Rat City daily. I wish more of the stores had opened up for it. The Jubilees crew obviously works so hard hustling up and down the area all week and I am grateful. It will keep getting tweaked and better, but like every year, Jubilee Days is what YOU make of it. Relax and enjoy yourself.

  8. I applaud the brave move to include 16th. That was a rousing success. Never in my experience has this event seemed so inclusive of local businesses. It was great to see new and old businesses in our fair hood open up and be a part of the party. I had a blast and made sure to patronize. Great for fair goers, great for the fair, great for the hood, great for the future of Jubilee Days.
