This is a welcomed sight back into the neighborhood as it will benefit all the local business and provide a family friendly event for all to enjoy. This popular event was missed by so many residents and businesses alike.

I look forward to working with other local businesses, the City of St. Matthews and event organizers. I’m thrilled to unveil an entertainment lineup that will have you dancing in the streets making this year’s festival the talk of the town. Save the date because you won’t want to miss out on the festivities – Get ready to dance, eat, drink, and have some fun!” Jared Fox Matthews, Owner Fox Den Billiards, Bites and Brews
