The City of Fremont and Fremont Chamber of Commerce are hosting a groundbreaking celebration for the future Downtown Event Center and Plaza at the corner of Capitol Avenue and State Street on Friday, October 25. Festivities will begin at 4:30 pm with the groundbreaking ceremony, and continue with the final Fremont Street Eats of 2019 with Food Truck Mafia. One food voucher will be offered per person for the first 400 groundbreaking attendees.
After the groundbreaking ceremony, entertainment for this family-friendly event will include live music (East Bay Mudd), artists and entertainers, street games, bounce houses, and a raffle. The event will conclude at 9 p.m. and is sponsored by Lennar, Overton Moore Properties, Robson Homes, Sares Regis, SummerHill Housing Group, TMG Partners, and Valley Oak Partners.
The future 13,400-square-foot downtown event center and 1-acre downtown plaza will offer a destination for the Fremont community to gather socially and for business. The modern downtown event center will have meeting rooms of varying scales and amenities along with a large spacious lobby that will become downtown’s primary destination for traditional community center functions.
The outdoor plaza will facilitate the programmatic needs of Fremont’s culturally diverse and innovative community. This space will feature a garden breakout area under a tree canopy that will host outdoor activities including concerts, food truck events, and maker fairs in addition to sports and games piloted at the Temporary Town Fair Plaza over the past few years.
