Rice Howard Way Entertainment District

The Rice Howard Way Entertainment District is in full swing this summer. Every Saturday from 1 PM to 9 PM, Rice Howard Way (101 Avenue & 100 Street) will be closed to vehicles as it transforms into an outdoor food and beverage friendly hub with free activities. This means you can pop into any of the businesses in the district and grab an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage to bring out on the street.

You may not consume your own outside alcohol within the district. Only alcohol purchased from one of the licensed establishments within the Entertainment District is allowed.

Last call for beverages at all participating businesses is 8 PM.

Where can I buy an alcoholic drink?


Takeout food can be purchased from any of the businesses on the street.

Join us every Saturday on Rice Howard Way for FREE entertainment, live music and activities.

The Entertainment District runs now through August 24. Details to come. For now, here’s what’s coming up:
