    The Adams Avenue street fair will take place on Sept. 28 and 29 in Normal Heights.

    Adams Avenue in Normal Heights will shut down over the weekend for one of Southern California’s biggest street fairs and music festivals.

    The 32nd Annual Adams Avenue Street Fair runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on both days.

    Since 1981, each year the free, all ages event is held as a way for residents, small business operators, and property owners to celebrate and show pride in the Normal Heights community.

    This year the event puts the spotlight on musicians of all genres with more than 90 artists from around the country set to perform on one of eight stages located on Adams Avenue, Adams Avenue Park, and at Lestat’s coffee house.

    Included in this year’s line-up are San Diego’s own R&B and soul group, the Styletones. Check out this list for a complete line-up.

    More than just music, the two-day festival offers up three beer gardens, carnival rides, and unique vendors as all sorts.

    And then there’s the food.

    Those hankering for some good eats will have over 300 options to choose from including area restaurants and pubs, according to event organizers.

    Complete information, including artist line-ups, schedules, and maps, can be found on the event’s website.
