“THANK YOU to everyone who came out to join us for our 17th Annual Graham Avenue Fiesta. From our merchants and invited vendors, to our incredible stage performers, and especially our many corporate sponsors who helped make the day a successful community building event.” The Graham Avenue BID posted on Facebook.

RISE Radio Family DJed and served as MC for all the community acts that took center stage. There was a treasure hunt supported by the coordinated help of the merchants and vendors.

The Fiesta also launched the Graham Avenue BID’s local shopping campaign that utilizes the Get It @ Graham Community Gift Card. The card can be used at a growing list of participating local restaurants and retail merchants, including those of the Moore Street Market (La Marqueta)“Because everyone knows that when you Get it at Graham, you get Moore.” This gift card program encourages local, in-person shopping, as the cards cannot be used for online shopping or at shops outside of the Graham Avenue commercial district.
