NEWaukee Night Market is back

Portland, Oregon USA- July 15, 2015: Food truck vendors and hungry customers meet at the corner of SW 10th and SW Alder St.

From Urban Milwaukee:

NEWaukee‘s Night Market returns for a third year on W. Wisconsin Ave. starting Wednesday night. The outdoor event will close W. Wisconsin Ave. to vehicular traffic from N. 2nd St. to N. 4th St., replacing cars with thousands of people, a dance floor and arts and craft vendors. The market has something for everyone, ranging from food and music to a temporary park (with fire pits and s’mores) and a Boston Store sidewalk sale. Entertainment acts cover the whole spectrum ranging from a performance by members of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra at 7:00 p.m. at the June event to a regional break dancing tournament at the September event.

The 2016 market marks a transition point for the area. With the adjacent Shops of Grand Avenue under new ownership changes are afoot, including a bold vision for the mall that was unveiled in April. Applebee’s, which in the new plan was conceptually targeted for a local restaurant, will close the day before the market starts. Are we about to see the first shoe drop?
