Queen St to Host Three Street Parties


In past years the Downtown Association has hosted festivals, celebrations, and more. This year, the Association in collaboration with our membership has decided to host a three-part street party series. The parties will take place July 19th, August 9th and September (Date TBD pending Soo Greyhound Season opener). “We want to give the Sault yet another reason to discover, the beauty that is downtown Sault Ste. Marie!” said Taylor Jaehrling, promotions for the downtown association.
Along with these staple events they are also have 11 downtown activities, their goal is to mobilize 250 days of 365 days year of activation – meaning, 68% of the year you can count on something happening in your downtown!

Thus far, they have had tremendous support financially, and in-kind for this party series – but they haven’t met their our goal quite yet! That’s why they need you!

100% of your dollars, as a sponsor will go toward the street parties! No need to worry, every dollar raised will go directly into the organization and execution of the celebration and not into operations.

Did you know that the Downtown Association has hosted a downtown street party for nearly forty years?

And this year, for the first time ever they are dividing it up to enjoy over three spectacular evenings! You can expect beer tents and bands, bouncy houses, food, face painting, games, vendors, car shows, buskers and so much more.

Why should I sponsor?

Each year, the Downtown Street Party welcomes thousands of people – what better way to reach mass audiences with a relatively inexpensive investment? The events are open to the entire city and welcome people of all ages and backgrounds. In 2018, we are hosting three events – which gives businesses three opportunities to get your name out there and to engage with your target market. Whether you are in the service sector, hospitality, retail – there will always be community members looking for what you’re offering. Sponsoring is a great way to show Sault Ste. Marie that you are excited about what is happening!

“Plus, we work with our sponsors to ensure that their contribution is getting the recognition they deserve! Each sponsorship level is tailored to reach key audience segments and provides a unique way to ‘wow’ your community! We offer a sponsor package, but are willing to develop customized packages that suit the needs of community businesses!”

Stay tuned!

On top of our three downtown street parties,  the downtown association will be bringing  four Saturday mixers in Square 1 (East to Brock) as well as assisting various other downtown events.


  1. They should be having these at least twice a month, preferably weekly. Show everyone that this town is actually alive!
