WINDSOR-ESSEX — Coming off the success of Leamington’s Art in the Parkette and the Holiday Night Market, organizers are excited to extend these events to the community 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 St. Night Market will feature delicious street food, handcrafted items, vintage clothing and antiques, craft beer and cocktails, local wine and music.
Hosted by the Municipality of Leamington and Leamington Arts Centre, with support from the Uptown BIA, The Bank Theatre, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island and WindsorEats, the first Mill St. Night Market will be held Friday, May 3, 2019 from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Admission is free and the event is open to all ages.
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.”
