MarketFest returns to Nelson this July 26th starting at 6 pm and running until 10:00 pm on the 200 and 300 blocks of Baker St. This is a rain or shine event but with luck the weather will be beautiful, the sun will shine, and the music will soar. This July’s MarketFest musical line-up is TBA but will take place on the Falls St. Stage at Falls and Baker St.

MarketFest attendees will, as always, have a fantastic variety of  products to choose from including include hand-made hats and clothes, locally made pottery and jewellery, and an array of body care products and, of course, lots of different and delicious ready-to-eat foods.

At the Stanley St. Stage, which is hosted this year by The Nelson District Arts Council, there will be live painting, art gallery and other performances. Check back for more information as the date approaches.
