4th Annual Monument Community Pride Street Festival
1500 Monument Blvd, Concord
June 7, 2008, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

Monument Boulevard is our neighborhood, where we live, work, and raise families. We have wonderful businesses and community organizations that have so much to be proud of in the way they touch people's lives. We want to be known for the vibrant colors and richness that this area is made up of, and showcase who we are so that we can be a proud community that leads to downtown Concord.

We want to attract individuals from outside the community to see the Monument through the lens of hope and opportunity, rather than its challenges.

In addition to various family friendly activities for children & families, including local talent through music, dance and arts, we want to showcase the multi-cultural diversity of the area.


The Four Corners Action Team and the Monument Community Partnership would like to thank everyone who worked to bring this event to the community. This was a group effort and without the support of the city, local businesses, the faith community, volunteers and sponsors, we would not have been able to put this together.

If you would like to be involved with the partnership or would like more information, please contact our Community Hosts:
Silvia Maldonado: tel: 925-671-3290, email: Silvia@monumentcommunity.org
Jeanette Quintero: tel: 925-671-3145, email: Jeanette@monumentcommunity.org
