Artists Collaborative Theatre (ACT) is excited to, once again, invite friends and neighbors to come shop beneath the setting sun on Friday, September 29th from 6-10 pm at the 2017 Elkhorn City Fall Night Market!
Recent Elkhorn City Night Markets have grown exponentially with each event, and we expect this fall edition will follow the same trend. With crowds of over 1,000 people visiting the town to enjoy streets lined with an array of vendors, live performances from local musicians, and a delicious assortment of foods and treats, the Elkhorn City Night Market has earned a reputation for being an incredible way for folks to kick of their weekend.
The evening will feature a full lineup of live music and entertainment. Several well-known local musical acts will be in attendance, featuring sounds across several genres. Market-goers can expect to hear bluegrass, indie, folk, rock, and more. In addition to all the elements of previous successful markets, visitors can also expect to enjoy a cozy bonfire, S’more and marshmallow roasting, fun hayrides, a selfie station full of theatre props, face painting, and more.
Vendors expected to line the streets on September 29th include many returning favorites, such as those selling handmade and unique jewelry, woodworking crafts, home décor, restored furniture, original pieces of artwork, customizable embroidery items, an array of locally-themed apparel, homemade soaps and lotions, a variety of mouth-watering foods, and much more. Several brand name vendors will be present as well, such as Lula Roe clothing, Pink Zebra scented wax melts, and Plunder jewelry.
In addition, those who visit the Fall Night Market are encouraged to make an “Elkhorn Evening” out of it and stop in at Artists Collaborative Theatre to catch a showing of the pg-13 comedy drama, Calendar Girls which will begin at 7:30 pm at only $10 a ticket. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at http://www.act4.org/. Several highly reviewed Elkhorn City restaurants also stand-by to serve hungry town guests everything from the best freshly made pizza in the region to hot homestyle meals like grandma used to make.
Those interested in setting up as a vendor or performing on stage should contact Samantha West by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message to the Artists Collaborative Theatre, Inc. Facebook page at facebook.com/ACTheatre1. More information and vendor applications may be found online at pike.ca.uky.edu/NightMarket or may be picked up in person at the Pike County Extension Service located at 148 Trivette Dr. in Pikeville, KY. All proceeds from booth registration fees go directly to support ACT, a 501c3 non-profit organization working to support the arts in Appalachia.
With the crisp autumn air slowly floating into the region, the Elkhorn City Fall Night Market promises to be a grand way to welcome in the new season. Bring a couple of friends and your family, including your furry leashed buddies!
