Shepherdstown StreetFest is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency dedicated to showcasing the Shepherdstown community and the many talented people who live here while raising much-needed funds for two local charities. Past events have drawn more than 5,000 people to town to enjoy more than fifty artisan booths, shop in local stores and restaurants, and enjoy live music and community events. This year StreetFest's beneficiaries will be Shepherdstown Shares and the Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center.
This is the first year the event has been held since 2018. StreetFest President John Meeker shared that the planning team has worked hard to showcase the best of Shepherdstown. "We are thrilled to be able to bring back this celebration of our creative and vibrant community. We are thinking of it as a Homecoming where friends and neighbors can reunite to enjoy all the things that make Shepherdstown special as well as to raise funds for two local charities that have stepped up to provide essential support to those in need during the pandemic."
Jefferson Security Bank's President and CEO Cindy A. Kitner shared that as a locally grown bank, JSB prides itself on fostering civic events that benefit the community. “We are excited to support the return of the Shepherdstown Street Fest which contributes to the ongoing vitality of our community and celebrates local talent and small businesses. We look forward to our community coming together to enjoy everything our town has to offer, while supporting two local charities Shepherdstown Shares and the Eastern Panhandle Empowerment Center,” said Kitner.
