Bold Street has held a festival for the past 3 years.[when?] In 2010, this took place on Sunday 26 September. The festival celebrates Liverpool's alternative shopping area. Sarah Newton said 'Cities all over are under pressure to homogenize more, to look more like one another, but Bold Street just looks like Liverpool and I think it's really important that we highlight this.'. The festival included pavement art, dance workshops, a parade from Liverpool samba group, street performers and a ceremonial street clean . The festival also hosted the world's smallest nightclub with an entrance fee of only 50 pence.
