Every other September, the Seward neighborhood celebrates a much anticipated festival at Matthews Park known as King’s Fair. This eclectic family-friendly event features costume parade, artwork by our creative community, interesting history about our neighborhood, and plenty of fun activities organized by our local businesses and neighbors.
This year’s King’s Fair will be on September 16 in Matthews Park.
