After a successful Art in the Parkette and the Holiday Night Market, plans are now in the works to extend these types of events throughout the year.
Leamington’s newly reinvented Mill Street West will set the stage for a series of night markets held once monthly from May through November. The Mill Street Night Market will feature street food, handcrafted items, vintage clothing and antiques, craft beer and cocktails, local wine and music.
The first market will be held on Friday, May 3rd, 2019 from 5pm t0 10pm and will see Mill Street West will be closed, creating a pedestrian-only area in the heart of Uptown Leamington. Up to 20 vendors will be showcased alongside Leamington businesses with a wine bar provided by the Leamington Arts Centre, craft beer from the new Cured Craft Brewery opening this summer, and local music by The Bank Theatre.
“Mill Street was reinvented in part, to host dynamic events such as night markets that bring people into the core of our reviving Uptown,” said Mayor Hilda MacDonald. “These events will showcase Leamington as rapidly becoming a top of mind destination for modern and authentic tourism experiences.”
Admission is free and the event is open to all ages.
