Milwaukee, Wisc. September 10, 2018NEWaukee is excited to announce its final Night Market of the 2018 season this week on Wednesday, September 12th from 5-10PM. The Night Market is an open-air market that offers experiences for people of all backgrounds and ages on West Wisconsin Avenue.

Wednesday’s Night Market includes special performances from Danceworks, TRUE Skool, WC Tank and the Milwaukee Ballet. The evening is family friendly with activities including GRAEF’s s’mores roasting station, life size chess and checker boards, yard games, live blacksmithing from Milwaukee Blacksmiths, and more.

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, live art creation, pop up performances, DJ sets from True Skool, a beer garden, and engaging nonprofit and community booths.

”The fifth year of the Night Market has been the biggest and best yet,” says Rita DeMerit, Director of Events at NEWaukee. “We are so grateful to be able to create this unique experience for the community and showcase all of the people and places that make it so special.”

NEWaukee extended the Night Market street closure in July after large crowds packed the first market of 2018 in June. West Wisconsin Avenue between Plankinton and 4th streets and Old World Third between Wisconsin Avenue and Wells Street will be shut down from noon to 1AM on the day of the event.
