“Come one, come all to the first annual Market Street Harvest Fest,” says Councilman Mike Fagan. The festival is Saturday, Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Historic Hillyard Business District.

The Greater Hillyard Business Association (GHBA), a local non-profit, will launch the first annual festival with a benefit breakfast. “The Coldest Breakfast In Spokane” begins at 9:30 a.m. Celebrity Chef Adam Hegsted, supported by major sponsors, has partnered with the GHBA to give 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit local heroes at the Fairchild AFB Family Advocacy Center.

The festival also includes “Kids Fest” with live entertainment and activities, craft beer and wine tasting for the adults and performances by “Christy Lee and the Eleven 18”, “Tommy G” and “The Cary Fly Band.” There are a variety of local vendors including the Spokane Food Truck Association and the Farmers Market by Greenbluff.

Fagan said he’s proud of his City Council District.

“Hillyard is a community that takes unparalleled steps to promote itself,” he said. “It is a vibrant, growing, business friendly district that welcomes the entire community and embraces dynamic, innovative ideas.”

Admission to the festival is $5 for adults. Kids 12 and under are free.
