MarketFest is back on Baker St. on Friday

The West Kootenay EcoSociety is bringing MarketFest back to Baker Street on Friday from 6 to 10:30 p.m.

This is a rain-or-shine event but hopefully the weather will be kind, the sun will shine, and the music will soar. The music for the June event includes Brian Rosen and the WhatNow, Jon Burden, Bend Sinister and many more. There are also of number of dance acts including Slava Doval’s Dance and Erin & the Show Cats. This year’s two other MarketFest events take place July 22 and Aug. 26 in the 200 and 300 blocks of Baker St.

EcoSociety markets and events director Jesse Woodward is working with vendors, the Chamber of Commerce and city agencies to ensure that MarketFest is once again a great success.

“We’re delighted with the response from all involved in making the June MarketFest a wonderfully successful event including the vendors, volunteers, the City of Nelson and Baker St. businesses,” he said. “June MarketFest is once again sold out with 100 vendors displaying their amazing variety of offerings.

“It is always remarkable to see all the creativity and care the vendors put into their products and displays. MarketFest attendees will have a fantastic variety of products to choose from including include hand-made hats, locally made clothing, pottery and jewellery, an array of locally crafted body care products and, of course, lots of different and delicious ready to eat foods.”

MarketFest will have its food court area on and around Kootenay St. which makes it very easy for festival goers to find and choose from the wide selection of ready-to-eat foods on hand. What better way to spend a warm summer evening then eating scrumptious fresh foods, shopping for locally made goods and listening to wonderful live music?

The West Kootenay EcoSociety operates MarketFest as a project to promote our local economy and create a meeting place for arts, culture and community.
