Octo Street Fest Highlights Restaurants Row on Oct 13

The festival will also offer tarot reading, magic tricks, belly dancing, and live music.

Octo Street Fest is a free fall festival for all ages on Saturday, Oct. 13 in downtown Aurora. Held on Pinney Street behind “Restaurant Row,” Octo Street Fest highlights menu offerings from dining options along West New York Street and pairs them with local music and some magic for an afternoon of wonder from 2 to 7 p.m.

Octo Street Fest will showcase the restaurants and businesses along Restaurant Row, including Endiro Coffee, Ballydoyle, Gillerson’s Grubbery, U Samba? Cafe, and others. My Funnel will be a visiting food truck.

Card reading by Brea will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Strolling magic with Bruce will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Mantra Belly Dance performs at 3 p.m. Awecoustics perform at 4 p.m. Saint Astro headlines at 5:30 p.m.

Gillerson’s Grubbery and U Samba? Cafe are both hosting food and beer tents, and Ballydoyle will have its Irish Rover serving whiskey shakeups and more. Endiro Coffee is hosting a kid-friendly activity area.

A nearby mural adjacent to the festival will be ready for selfies. The Aurora Public Art commissioned painting by Bunnie Reiss under the New York Street bridge features great blue herons and the artist’s signature Eastern European design elements, according to Jen Evans, director of Aurora Public Art.

Pinney Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for the event. Free parking is available in Lot W on River Street north of New York Street.

The festival is rain or shine, and will be held indoors at the restaurants in the case of inclement weather.

Octo Street Fest is presented by Aurora Downtown, a nonprofit group of downtown business and property owners located in SSA #One in Aurora, Ill.
