Downtown Evansville’s Annual Sidewalk Sale Returns Saturday May 7th
Spring is almost here! We are only a couple of weeks away from turning our clocks forward and that means longer days with sunsets that don't go down until after 7 pm. I don't know about you but I am ready for it!
One of my favorite events that take place in the spring is the annual sidewalk sale hosted by Downtown Evansville. It is always so cool to stroll along Main Street to see everything for sale at "Evansville's longest street sale."
Organized by the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District, the event will span Main Street from Second Street to Sixth Street with vendors stretched end to end occupying 20-foot x 10-foot booth spaces.
When & Where?
Taking place in Downtown Evansville, the event will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2022, from 9 am until 2 pm and will stretch four blocks of Evansville's Main Street.
What Can You Find?
In addition to the vendors, many of the local shops and restaurants will be open for businesses as well. You'll be able to find everything from handmade jewelry and soaps to hand-poured candles, floral arrangements and artisan dog treats, and everything in between.
Can I Rent a Booth Space?
If you are interested in occupying one of the booth spaces as a vendor, the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District would love to hear from you.
