River City Marketplace
Saturday, May 14 | 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Fremont Park | 16 & P
Inspired by the unique, thriving markets in New Orleans, Washington, DC and New York, RCMP Founder Mindy Jovanovic built the event in Spring 2015 with the vision of giving artists an accessible platform to share their work with the community and develop their brands while contributing to the creative character of their city.
This free event will feature handmade products from across the mediums. Look for jewelry & apparel for all personal styles, incredible original art & photography, finely-crafted woodwork, rare vintage finds, enriching bath & body goods, whimsical children’s gifts and much more. For those on the hunt for things truly unique, check out the large-scale wood games, decoupage trays, macramé air plant holders and custom pet portraiture.
Along with perusing the vast marketplace, make a fun afternoon of it with family-friendly elements to round out the event, such as a hair braid bar from Federico Beauty Institute and live entertainment from local groups Yellow Dot Music and BTU Brass Band. Enjoy delicious cuisine from local food trucks and small batch food creators bringing you delights from Italian ice to sea salt caramels.
For the young ones, bring them by the interactive kids’ zone featuring balloon animals, a musical instrument petting zoo and a collaborative hands-on art project to benefit the local chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters!
Well-known community non-profit organizations will also be featured, including the Food Literacy Center and Front Street Animal Shelter, who will each share their impactful missions through engaging activities.
