August 2015 Night Market
August 7, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The August 2015 Night Market is on August 7 from 6 – 10 pm on the 700 block of Bryan Avenue.
“The Night Market is a monthly pop-up street festival that helps businesses, artists, and non-profits from the North Limestone Corridor reach new audiences.
The Night Market is a pop-up open air-market located on the 700 block of Bryan Avenue. The Night Market is held annually on the first Friday of every month from April to December. It is free and open to the public, and runs from 6 pm to 10 pm. While primarily serving as a platform for neighborhood businesses, artists, and nonprofits to grow their business, the Night Market also highlights the creativity in our community and brings people from all over the region to Lexington’s Northside.
To make the Night Market possible, the 700 block of Bryan Ave is temporarily closed to traffic on the day of the market. The street is lined on both sides by vendor booths, and the street is transformed through lighting, street trees, planters, and temporary art installations. On both ends of the market, there are food vendors from Northside restaurants, food trucks, and folks aspiring to start new culinary businesses. In the parking lot just off of Bryan Ave, there is a beer draft trailer and biergarten courtesy of Northside brewery West Sixth Brewing, and live music from local and regional bands. 50% of proceeds from beer sales at the Night Market go back to supporting the market itself, as well as other community projects in the Northside.
The 2015 Night Market season is presented by West Sixth Brewing and Kentucky for Kentucky.”
