Menlo Summer Fest this weekend

The annual Menlo Summer Fest returns to Menlo Park's downtown on Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22.

Sponsored by the Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce, the event on Santa Cruz Avenue, from Johnson Street to El Camino Real, will be from 10 a.m to 6 p.m. both days.

The street will be filled with music stages, food trucks, food and drink tents, arts and crafts and amusement park-style rides.

Menlo Summer Fest's lineup of 13 bands and DJs this year includes: East Bay Mudd, Rock Steady SF, The Riekestra, Delta Wires, The Illeagles, and DJ I-Cue. The groups will perform on two big stages along with multiple smaller locations.

Street food will include coffee-rubbed beef brisket, Teriyaki chicken, burritos, WaHaKa bowls with organic veggies, paella, watermelon, lemonade and juices, and shaved ice, to name a few.

Fleet Feet Menlo Park is also sponsoring a free 5K fun run and walk, beginning at 9 a.m. on Sunday in Fremont Park. Register at

The organizers request that festival-goers leave their pets at home.
