NEWaukee is proud to announce the 2nd annual Night Market, a monthly open-air market that offers a wide variety of experiences for people of all backgrounds and ages on West Wisconsin Avenue between 2nd and 4th Streets. New this year are the programmatic and artistic collaborations that aim to connect the Westown Association Farmers’ Market and River Rhythms along with the Creative Alliance Milwaukee’s 4MKE Initiative to further expand upon the exciting momentum in the downtown’s western neighborhood.

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 art and craft vendors, technology installations, food trucks, live art creation, performances, local music, a beer garden and interactive non-profit booths like the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Puppy Pit.

This year, the Night Market runs on West Wisconsin Avenue from 5 to 10 p.m. on the following Wednesday evenings: June 17th, July 22nd, August 19th, and September 16th. Westown’s River Rhythms takes place in Pere Marquette Park weekly on Wednesdays, June 10th to August 26th from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Westown’s Farmers’ Market occurs in Zeidler Union Square every Wednesday June 3rd to October 28th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
