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

What does community mean to you?
Community to me, extends beyond just where you live.  Communities can be elective and centered around one's interests. As a creative, one of my most precious communities is that of the art world.  I've forged professional networks and life long friendships with fellow artists that are some of my most enriching and rewarding relationships.
Why are you interested in PAR-Education? I'm interested in PAR-Education not only because I love teaching but also because I truly believe in the transformative power of the arts.  I also enjoy working within my community because I like to feel connected to the place I live and work and the people who make Cincinnati neat!

Switch Turns Ten
