Downtown Bakersfield will host the city’s ultimate social gathering for young professionals – the BYP Street Party – on Oct. 13.
Now in its third year, the event will shut down the Wall Street Alley, between H and Eye streets, from 6 to 10 p.m. Some of Bakersfield’s hottest bands and DJs will rock the alley. Grab your favorite libation from the craft beer garden to pair with fare from local food truck vendors. This is the largest event of the year for the Bakersfield Young Professionals, a program of the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce. BYP’s goal is to give millennials the tools, resources and insight to establish their careers and contacts through professional development, social and philanthropic avenues.
The BYP Street Party is presented by Kern Federal Credit Union. Gold sponsors include Advance Beverage Company, TBC Media and W. A. Thompson Inc. Bronze sponsors are The Mark Restaurant and Pepsi Beverages Company.
Advance tickets are $30 or $35 at the door. Purchase tickets at eventbrite.com.
