Hayward LIVE! and Third Thursdays flyers

Summertime gatherings in Downtown Hayward continue through July and August with Hayward LIVE! art and entertainment showcases Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings, and with the return of third Thursday of the month downtown street parties.

Hayward LIVE! is a new City of Hayward Economic Development Division initiative to draw more visitors to shop, dine and socialize downtown.  It opened June 30 and July 1 with pop-up musical performances, interactive artist displays and vendors along B Street between Mission and Foothill boulevards.

On Thursday, July 20, the next Hayward Chamber of Commerce-led Thursday Night Street Party, called City Extravaganza, will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of B and Main streets.  Entertainment will include live music, a beer and wine garden, car show and a family fun zone.  It will be followed by the Hot August Nights downtown street party on Thursday, Aug. 17.
