The 27th-annual Zionsville Brick Street Market will take place Saturday on Main Street.
Known throughout the Midwest for its family atmosphere, the event is hosted by the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce and will feature artisans from Indiana and surrounding states sharing their creations from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Market, as always an admission-free event, will feature a vendor-packed food court, a children’s area replete with balloon animals and face painting, complimentary shuttle transportation and much more. The shuttle will run between Zionsville Town Hall, 1100 W. Oak St., and the festivities.
“We’re hopeful this will be a successful year,” said Dusky Loebel, Chamber of Commerce director. “We’re going to have about 175 vendors on the street under our signature white tents, and food vendors on the streets. We’re looking forward to it.”
In addition to Saturday’s excitement, Main Street will play host to Market Eve and the Z’Beer Garden on Friday night. The beer garden is new for 2012.
Market Eve, running from 7 to 9 p.m., will let patrons taste cuisine while listening to live music from blues act Willie and the Tease. The Z’Beer Garden will see select Indiana brewers present beer samples, including the premier tasting of new brews between 8 and 10:30 p.m.
“This is our fourth year of involvement with Market Eve,” Loebel said. “We’ll have 20 craft beers from local breweries, as well as a food tent that will offer gourmet food samples from local restaurants.”
Tickets for Market Eve Food Tent are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets for the Z’Beer Garden are $20 as well.
