The event is supported by Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church, the City of Paducah, Midtown Alliance of Neighbors, and others.

During the community fair, Monroe Street will be closed between 16th and Fountain Avenue. The northbound lane of Fountain Avenue from Monroe to Madison also will be closed.

City of Paducah Planning Director Steve Ervin says, “Since the City Commission committed to the revitalization of the Fountain Avenue Neighborhood in 2007, property values in the neighborhood have risen, and we are reaching a point where we are seeing significant private investment. The neighborhood continues to add new and rehabilitated homes. At this time, there have been 62 homes with rehabilitation projects in excess of $50,000. Plus, 22 new homes have been constructed in the neighborhood. The neighborhood is safe, attractive, and bustling with public and private construction projects.”

The Fountain Avenue Neighborhood is a neighborhood filled with 100 year old homes. Fountain Avenue, Park Avenue, North 13th Street, and the alley between Monroe and Jefferson comprise the boundaries of the neighborhood.
