Northside Summer Market's 2017 Schedule


When the responsibility of organizing + sustaining this event was passed to us a few years ago, we set two primary goals 1) Make sure it aligned with our mission to help empower community in the arts, and 2) Do our best to help grow the event to benefit our neighbors, businesses, and lovers of Northside!

With those goals in mind, we added more elaborate house-mapping (and information) in 2014, the Art Fair component in 2015, plus we've continued to collect feedback from our neighbors and participants to help keep the needle moving forward.

Related to the latter, it's been suggested that we tweak the overall timing of the event, so more people can participate AND so it can become more of a summer celebration. Below is the new schedule that will hopefully help more people have a great time, each and every August.


THE OFFICIAL TIMING OF THINGS: 

The Northside Summer Market will start at 9am, with individual yard sales at houses throughout Northside until (at least) 2pm. Guests will be able to pick up a map of the participating yard sales at the Northside Summer Market’s central location, 11am – 5pm, along with various Northside businesses, starting at 8:30am. (This aspect is fairly unchanged. It simply gives home-owners a little more flexibility.)

The central location will run 11am – 5pm , along Hoffner Street. This is where guests will find the main event, which staggers community yard sale booths and art fair booths to create a unique, cross-pollination event, between Hamilton Ave. and Cherry St. And if you didn’t know, this event runs in conjunction with “The World’s Longest Yard Sale” and we are a growing “ Major Vendor Stop ” so expect to see some out-of-towners! 

The LIVE Music Beer Garden will be active 2pm - 9pm, but will open at 11am, in case anyone gets thirsty! This is our strategy to help Northside Summer Market become more of a party (and after party) for our vendors, our shoppers, and our neighborhood in general. This part of the event will take place in PAR-Projects' new courtyard at 1662 Hoffner Street — right alongside the main event.

Our musical line-up and a few other fun details related to individual house promotions will be announced in the next few weeks. But if you have any suggestions, we are all ears, and have at least one last spot to fill, music-wise.

Thanks again,
PAR-Projects

A Second Look For The First Time

If you’re not familiar with us, hello, we’re Professional Artistic Research Projects Incorporated. We’re a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

If you're already familiar with PAR-, hello again! New to us or not, we hope you'll lend us a few moments to get through this post. Our goal is simple: We'd like to get reacquainted. A lot is going on with our growing organization so, as Executive Director, there's no better time to reintroduce ourselves. And if all goes well, this will become an annual address — a progress report of sorts.
Back to the basics though: Our mission is to help empower community in the arts. As educators, we provide weekend workshops & multi-week classes, related to career development & skills training. A…
