The Street Fair is CANCELLED – The Posters, Shirts and Music are NOT!

Remember the Fair that wasn’t there!  Any mask will look better with a 2020 HPSF t-shirt. Details for purchasing shirts and posters coming soon. Proceeds from t-shirts, posters and a virtual concert tip jar will help NENA continue to support neighborhood programs.

Check out the newly released video of the SMF-Steve Fulton Music headlining performance from our 40th Anniversary last year. Click here for Steve Fulton Music Virtual Concert

Please add to our Virtual Tip Jar to support NENA’s neighborhood programs.

Hyde Park Street Fair has been an annual tradition since it was born in 1979 on the streets of Hyde Park, under the shade of century-old trees in Boise’s Historic North End. Last summer, the Fair celebrated 40 years of fun, food, unique vendors, and incredible performances by some of Boise’s most talented artists and performers.

100% of proceeds from the Fair fund the non-profit North End Neighborhood Association (NENA), in support of neighborhood programs, which this year have expanded to include nearly $20,000 in donations toward COVID-19 related relief programs in Boise. 95% of NENA’s budget comes from the Fair, and without it, your support is needed more than ever.

Please consider making a donation of any size (maybe the price of a beer or three you’d usually buy while enjoying a performance on the main stage?). NENA thanks you, and we will see you in 2021!

The NENA Aid Program: Get or Grow Community Support

Donate Now

The North End Neighborhood Association will play a significant role to mitigate the local effects of the current crisis. Though NENA is obviously identified with the North End, we are also part of the wider Boise community and will not restrict our efforts to the North End.

NENA will act as an aggregator. We do not claim to have the experience or resources to offer our own community service programs, so we will raise and allocate funding to partners with excellent frontline service efforts.

So far, NENA has raised almost $10,000 and distributed over $32,000, drawing on its own reserves, to support a ...
