Party on the Pavement

August 18 @ 12:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 18 and plan to spend your day downtown for the 18th annual Party on the Pavement street festival presented by the Downtown Racine Corporation. With over 12 blocks filled with live music, incredible food and drinks, street performances, shopping, games, and rides, there is something for the whole family. The day’s festivities kick off at noon and run until 7 p.m. Admission to the Party on the Pavement grounds is free, which takes place throughout downtown on Main Street from State Street to 7th Street, and all of 6th Street from Lake Avenue to City Hall.

If the thrill of over 15,000 attendees isn’t enough, the street performances slated for Party on the Pavement will surely get you excited. Division BMX Stunt Team will be soaring through the air on the corner of College Avenue and 6th Street. You can catch one of their shows at 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. Hip-Hop and breakdance group, Sweatshop Movement, will host jaw-dropping dance battles and performances throughout the day on the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and 6th Street.

Party on the Pavement has been a major destination for music lovers from all over Southeastern Wisconsin, and this year is no exception. Whether you are a fan of blues, rock ’n roll, hip-hop, or everything in between, this year’s diverse lineup has something for everyone. With four stages of live music throughout downtown, you will be dancing through the streets all day long. Here is this year’s music lineup:

The aroma stimulating your taste buds will make it impossible to walk down the street without grabbing a bite from every stop, so make sure you come with an appetite.

Party on the Pavement has special attractions for all ages. Let the kids burn off some energy from all the sweets at the Fun Zone presented by Siena Catholic Schools and Landmark Credit Union. Here, you will find a few carnival rides and bounce houses. Relive the glory days of automobiles at the Unique & Antique Car Show where over 100 exhibitors are expected to fill the Wisconsin Avenue between 4th Street and 7th Street. For even more classic automobiles, the Nash Car Club of America car show will be taking place on Sam Johnson Parkway next to the Johnson Building.

What You'll Get

Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.
