Cancel your plans and make room in your stomach because Steinbach’s biggest street party kicks off this Friday.

Tomorrow morning, Steinbach Credit Union invites Steinbach to breakfast, serving free pancakes and ham on Lumber Ave beside SCU from 7-9:30 a.m.

That should tide folks over until 11 a.m. when the 70-plus vendors open for business, hawking mouthwatering street food, handcrafts and other wares.

Starting at 11:30 a.m., performers take to the Steinbach Credit Union mainstage. It’s free to watch until 6 p.m. Friday acts include Backyard Theatre Company, 5acres, Jason Kirkness and others before headliner Terri Clark at 9:30 p.m.

Saturday performers include Scorpion Elite Cheerleading, Stacy James Band and the Boy and the Sea. Harlequin and Honeymoon Suite rock the stage Saturday night.

Cultures in the City brings the world to Main Street with music, dancers and food booths from countries such as Jamaica, Ireland, Rwanda, Brazil, Korea, as well as Indigenous and Metis performances.

Artists in the City will showcase an open-air gallery, art demonstrations as well as free Paint-in-the-City Parties with instructor Arlene Enns. Kids can enjoy face painting and a superhero mask-making station.

Street Arts in the City at the skate park features the Summer Skate Series and a graffiti art battle on Friday. Saturday, skateboarders and BMXers compete in Shred in the City and BOSS Dance Academy will showcase their best moves.

On Sunday, Worship in the City features guest speaker Mark Hughes along with Danny Plett and Project Worship at 10:30 a.m. A freewill offering will be taken. Funds go to South East Helping Hands, Soup’s On and Steinbach Community Outreach.

At 11 a.m., watch CrossFit athletes from across Manitoba compete at the T.G. Smith Centre.

At 12:30 p.m., comedian Matt Falk will take to the main stage. At 4:30 p.m. there will be a concert by The Color and Manic Drive.

Road closures for Summer in the City begin Thursday, with Reimer Avenue closing from Elmdale Street to First Street at 7 a.m. Main Street shuts down from Friesen Avenue to Barkman Avenue at 6 p.m. Streets reopen at midnight on Sunday.
