On a cold Winter night I’m remembering this warm and fun day in October.
Scene: StockadeFaire, Day into Night. A Block Party that took over Wall and North Front Streets in Kingston, coinciding with One Mile Gallery Janet Hicks OMGArtFaire.
Sean B Nutly of bluecashew Kitchen worked with his life and business partner JT McKay, and with Lovefield Vintage owners Darbie Nowatka and Justin Rice. Sean envisioned StockadeFaire as a collaboration between the Uptown Kingston businesses and the Phoenicia Flea.
StockadeFaire brought together business sponsors, merchant booths, live music acts, and DJs. The block of Wall between John and North Front Street was bookended by stages.
People came to hear the music, shop, view classic cars, mingle, dance, party, and enjoy the day into night event.
