The last MarketFest of the year goes this Friday evening in downtown Nelson.

Don’t miss this year’s last MarketFest

This MarketFest musical line-up includes Shred Kelly, Tofu Stravinsky, The Arron Nelson and the Buzz, Intersect and many more.

MarketFest is once again, and for the last time this year, back on Baker Street in Nelson this August 23 starting at 6 p.m. and going until 10:30 p.m.

This is a rain or shine event but with luck the weather will be beautiful, the sun will shine, and the music will fill the streets. This MarketFest musical line-up includes Shred Kelly, Tofu Stravinsky, The Arron Nelson and the Buzz, Intersect and many more.

EcoSociety’s markets director, Jesse R. Woodward, is once again working with vendors, business owners, and city agencies to ensure that the August 23 MarketFest is a big success.

“June and July MarketFest events were huge hits and were the biggest and best attended MarketFest celebrations in all of seven years that MarketFest has been running” he said. “Thousands and thousands of people have come out to take in and enjoy these street parties which I think really strengthens and supports the community here in the Kootenays”.

MarketFest attendees will have a fantastic verity of products to chose from including include hand-made hats and shoes, locally made clothing and jewellery, and an array of body and home care products and, of course, lots of different and delicious ready to eat foods

MarketFest will once again have a food court area on Kootenay Street that makes it very easy for festival goers to find and choose from the wide selection of ready to eat foods that will be 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 a relocalization of our economy and to create a meeting place for arts, culture and community networking.
