On average, this event brings more than 30,000 people downtown for food, beer, wine, art, entertainment and more!
Join us at 6:30 p.m. to watch American Idol contestant, Maddie Poppe, kick off the market and light up the main stage! You won't want to miss it! Then stick around at 9 p.m. to see 10-piece jazz & brass band, 10 of Soul! Bring a friend and get ready to dance the night away. The taps in our beverage tents will be flowing with local beer thanks to 7G, our Beverage Sponsor. Shop for delicious foods and unique goods from nearly 100 vendors! Anything from fresh produce and flowers to beautiful artwork, the market is sure to have it! The fun isn't just for the main stage. You'll find yard games at Greene Square park, street performers at almost every corner, and fun for all throughout the entire venue! Some performers include ballet dancers from Prestige Dance Studio, a red-hot performance from Radiance Fire, and LD Kidd's "Robot Man". Stay tuned for details to come!
