The Cleveland Park Streetscape and Drainage Improvement Project is officially underway. Construction can be very hard on local businesses—reducing foot traffic during a time when our local businesses are still struggling to recover from the impact of the pandemic.

That’s why Cleveland Park Main Street is organizing ConstructionFest! A 4-week wacky and fun celebration scheduled to take place May 21-June 18.

ConstructionFest will feature can’t-miss weird and wacky window displays, construction-themed story times, a scavenger hunt, construction-themed cocktails, and more.

Looking for updates on the construction? Visit the official Cleveland Park Streetscape project website.

Meet our mascot, Handy Pandy!
