APPLETON, Wis. (April 18, 2018) – Pulse Young Professionals Network, a program of the Fox Cities Chamber, is thrilled to announce that Bazaar After Dark, the Fox Cities inclusive and eccentric night market, will return for three separate events in 2018. Bazaar After Dark is dedicated to revitalizing and drawing positive attention to underutilized business districts in the Fox Valley, while fostering community collaborations through art, music and common experiences.

The first night market event of 2018 is scheduled for Saturday, April 28 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. in downtown Little Chute. The event will occur on Main Street from Monroe Street to Wilson Street. This event will conclude YPWeek 2018, a statewide initiative providing a platform for discovery, adventure and meaningful conversations about the issues that matter among young professionals in Wisconsin.

The summer night market will make its Neenah debut on South Commercial Street between Alcott and Wright Streets on Thursday, July 19 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Bazaar After Dark will return to Main Street in Downtown Menasha for its third event of 2018. The final night market is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Bazaar After Dark is an inclusive, family-friendly street market event. Attendees can expect to enjoy fresh food, live art, local business participation, live music and a pet-welcoming atmosphere many have grown to appreciate at the past Bazaar After Dark events.

Pulse continues to partner with Habitat for Humanity to support their Rock the Block program by purposefully selecting commercial districts for Bazaar After Dark night markets that coincide with neighborhood revitalization, which allows for a celebration of Habitat’s hard-working volunteers.

Interested Bazaar After Dark vendors, artists, sponsors and volunteers can find more information at Vendor applications for the Neenah and Menasha Bazaar After Dark night markets will open on May 1.

“Excitement for Bazaar After Dark continues to grow as we expand our reach with the three night markets in 2018. The first-ever Little Chute night market is right around the corner,” shared Nikki Hessel, Director of Pulse Young Professionals Network. “We are looking forward to supporting the existing businesses on South Commercial Street in Neenah, as well as inviting the community to imagine the future possibilities for that district; and we are equally thrilled to return to downtown Menasha to highlight the success and opportunities available there.”
