Milwaukee, Wisc. — NEWaukee is proud to announce that the Night Market returns next week on Wednesday, June 12th from 5-10PM. Now in its sixth season, the Night Market is a monthly, open-air market that offers a wide variety of experiences for people of all backgrounds and ages on West Wisconsin Avenue.
New this year, the Night Market will include a craft brewery village featuring six local breweries: Eagle Park, Gathering Place, Milwaukee Brewing Company, MobCraft, Sprecher and Third Space. Additionally, Central Standard Craft Distillery will serve batch cocktails.
“Every year, we work to find ways to make the Night Market bigger and better,” says Rita DeMerit, Director of Events at NEWaukee. “We are excited that in our sixth season, we are able to offer new experiences and features for our guests.”
NEWaukee founded the Night Market in the summer of 2014 with the goal of creating a free, vibrant, safe, and interactive place in downtown Milwaukee for people to experience culture at night. The program features over a hundred art and craft vendors, diverse food offerings, pop up performances, music from TRUE Skool, and interactive booths.
West Wisconsin Avenue between Plankinton and Vel R. Phillips Avenue, and Old World Third between Wisconsin Avenue and Wells Street will be shut down from 12PM-1AM on the day of the event. Busses that run along Wisconsin Avenue will be rerouted to either Michigan Avenue or Wells Street.
The 2018 NEWaukee Night Market was attended by approximately 60,000 guests throughout the summer. In addition, the 2018 NEWaukee Night Market featured over 170 unique vendors, 29 sponsors, and 16 performances from local art organizations.
The 2019 NEWaukee Night Market runs on West Wisconsin Avenue from 5-10PM on the following Wednesday evenings: June 12th, July 10th, August 14th, and September 11th.
