Re-Imagine Normal Street

by on May 5, 2016


Hillcrest is re-imagining Normal Street with four days of free family fun starting Thursday May 12th and ending with the Hillcrest Farmers Market on Sunday May 15th. We will be transforming Normal Street into a car free public space and opening up the street to pedestrians and cyclists.

The event will kick off on Thursday May 12th, 6pm-10pm with a Pechakucha Night where planners and creatives share their ideas in 20 images for 20 seconds each. On Friday May 13th, 6pm-11pm we will be hosting an event for the whole family with our Bike-In movie featuring Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster classic, E.T. On Saturday May 14th Hillcrest Brewing Company presents their Hillcrest Craft Beer Crawl from 2pm-6pm followed by a free concert under the stars at Re-imagine Normal Street from 6pm-10pm. On Sunday May 15th things will resume their natural order as we set up for the Hillcrest Farmers Market from 9am-2pm. We will be launching a crowd sourcing campaign on IndieGoGO on May 12th to help raise funds to make our public space a reality!

Along with our headlining events we encourage everyone to enjoy our

  • Out door neighborhood café
  • Paint by numbers community mural
  • Community design station with interactive virtual reality booth
  • Oversized board games and lawn games (ie. Jenga, Yahtzee, Twister and Cricket)
  • Lending library
  • Public piano donated by the San Diego Symphony
  • Live art
  • Food trucks

SANDAG through their mini grant program will be funding bike valet services for all 4 days.
