Announcements for Northside Summer Market 2019

As the summer progresses, so does our planning for this years Northside Summer Market.  If you follow us on our social media platforms, you already know the date for this year's event is Saturday, August 3rd.  However, you probably don't know about the developing details of the day.  While gears are still turning, we can confirm the event schedule which will include split programming between the morning and evening portions of the day as well as other exciting details. 

As per tradition, Northside Summer Market will coincide with the World's Longest Yard Sale weekend so community wide yard sales will take place throughout Northside, with a central location congregating at CAIN - 4230 Hamilton Ave.  Yard sales will begin at 9:00 am and continue to 2:00 pm.  Our friends at CAIN will also host a family cook out and cooling zone from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at the central location.  If you are interested in registering your house on the map or registering for a spot at the central location, follow the following link:  www.northsidesummermarket.com/   


With the help of our friends at Bertke Electric and Humble Monk Brewing Company, we will also host an evening portion of the festival in the shared parking lot of the two businesses - at the corner of Blue Rock and Apple Street (catty-corner to Jacob Hoffner Park). 

There, from 6:00 - 11:00 pm, festival patrons can enjoy the Humble Monk beer garden, live music, delicious food and art activities including a community mural painting station hosted by PAR-Projects as well as other projects and performances by local artists.

With respect for our city's past, we've booked one of the best bbq food trucks in town - Meatson's Barbecue.  We are also excited to announce that Cincinnati local musicians - Knotts will be performing a set on center stage.  For more information about Meatson's or Knotts, see the links below.

Northside Artists as Developers // The Final Hurdle

They said…

How do these crazy dreamers expect they’ll be able to build an art and education space from nothing… in a city they’re still finding their voice in, with no huge donors lined up, no financial planners on board, and no experience in land development?

Well…

We were in our 20s, so our approach may very well have seemed overly-ambitious or even silly. But one thing most have realized by now is that we weren’t concerned. No risk, no reward. We knew we had a worthy mission. We knew we had good reason. And quite frankly, we now know we were some of the most determined artists, connected to some of the strongest artists, and unafraid to reach out to the more established artists to help us make things happen. This was to be an experiment on a grand scale, led by a tiny team of talent and determination.

Of course there were some questions. Who would respect artists trying to build community? Who would take a chance to work with creatives doing place-making projects, in 2010, before pl…

A Humble Community Festival | Northside Summer Market | NSM019

Every year, a month after what is arguably Cincinnati's most creative few days of the summer — Northside's 4th of July Parade and Rock & Roll Festival — a humble neighborhood celebration takes place to invite everyone back into our community.

This event is Northside Summer Market — a community-wide yard sale with free arts & music programming. And on Saturday, August 3rd, we're doing it again!
As always, a day or two before the event, we'll release a printed and online map of all of our neighbors who have registered their houses' yard sales. But if you just want to visit Northside and go for it, two good starting places are the Yard Sale's Central Location at CAIN (4230 Hamilton Ave.) and our art-infused beer garden at Humble Monk Brewery (1641 Blue Rock St.).  This year, to help beat the heat, CAIN will be hosting a Cool Down Corner where festival patrons can enjoy grilled entrees, cold drinks, fresh fruit, FREE popsicles, kid's activities and a boo…

A timeline showing a bit more of PAR-Projects.

Over the years, we admittedly haven't been the best at sharing our story. Oftentimes it's a too-much-to-do-to-slow-down type of vibe. But until now, the "how" was a dilemma as well.

To say the least, our story is a slow-and-steady, observing-and-reinventing, complicated type of journey, but we're happy to have figured out a decent way to walk everyone through it. From illegal evictions in the private sector, to the loss of a 30 year lease in the public sector, we've found a way to keep the arts at our forefront and continue pushing forward ...so it's time to share a bit of that.

Unfortunately we couldn't embed the timeline in this post -- Blogger securities and all -- but hop on over to our information page for the newest feature of our hand-coded website ...by clicking this last part of this sentence. ... or by clicking the image below.



Thanks again for your time, Team PAR-
