The M7 Street Fair returns this year, after taking a year off, with the familiar Chester’s Classic Car Show and food vendors, as well as a local indie crafts and arts market and a live music stage along the “Melrose Curve.”

The event takes places 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 7, along 7th Avenue in the Melrose District, between Campbell Avenue and Indian School Road. The road will be blocked off to all vehicle traffic beginning at 5 a.m. and continuing until 9 p.m.

Originally consisting of a few 6-foot tables, a few dozen classic cars and a few hundred people, the Melrose District street fair has grown to more than 150 booths, food trucks and vendors, rides and crafts for the kids, live music, a beer garden courtesy of Sun Up Brewing Co., more than 200 classic cars pre-dating 1979, and 20,000-plus visitors. Admission is free.
