NEWaukee is excited to announce the 2019 Night Market dates. The NEWaukee Night Market is a free, outdoor event showcasing a variety of local Milwaukee vendors, performers and artists. Held monthly during the summer, the Night Market offers a wide variety of experiences for people of all backgrounds and ages.

The NEWaukee Night Market will be held on West Wisconsin Avenue between Plankinton and Vel R. Phillips Avenue from 5-10 p.m. on June 12, July 10, August 14 and September 11.

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 Night Market has changed the public narrative of West Wisconsin Avenue and the willingness for major development to be invested in the heart of downtown,” says Angela Damiani, Co-Founder and CEO of NEWaukee. “You can see its impact in the development of the Grand Avenue Mall, the restoration of the MSO’s Warner Grand Theatre and plans for the city-owned 4th Street vacant lot.”

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 vendors, 29 sponsors, and 16 performances from local art organizations.

NEWaukee is looking for local vendors to sell their wares at the Night Market. Vendor applications for the 2019 season are now open and are due by midnight on Friday, March 15th. There is no fee to apply.  The application can be found at Accepted vendors will be notified by the end of March.

Companies interested in Night Market sponsorship opportunities are encouraged to email for more information.
