The Willow Glen Business Association (WGBA) is proud to announce the 17th annual Dancin’ on the Avenue in Willow Glen to be held on June 23rd, 2012 from 3 pm to 8 pm. Bust out the dancing shoes, call your friends and neighbors, and come to Downtown Willow Glen’s annual street party featuring a showcase of Willow Glen’s finest eateries, live music stages, dancing, fun kids’ activities, and lots of happy feet. The Dancin’ on the Avenue organizing committee, chaired by WGBA President, Jess Gutierrez, has been working hard and looking to the past to recapture the community and family friendly vibe that this festival was originally known for. A few changes implemented for this year’s event include:

  • The festival will begin and end an hour earlier this year, opening at 3 pm and ending at 8 pm
  • The Kids’ Court, sponsored by Wells Fargo, has been expanded and will include a petting zoo and visits from some fun local team mascots
  • A premium beer and wine garden, sponsored by Sereno Group Real Estate and Bridge Bank, has been added at 1261 Lincoln Ave.
  • Security will be increased at the two monitored entrances at Willow and Minnesota where IDs and purses/backpacks will be checked. No outside containers of any kind – even coffee cups – will be allowed in

This event draws around 35,000 residents and guests every year who come to enjoy the best that Willow Glen has to offer.
