This Friday is the place to be in downtown Kent for the Kent Downtown Partnership’s Night Market, which runs from 5 – 8 p.m.

The market will be held on 1st Avenue South in Downtown Kent, and will feature live music and 30+ artists and vendors, restaurants and shops.

The block will be closed to vehicles to create a pedestrian-oriented outdoor, open marketplace. Restaurants and retail shops will use indoor and outdoor seating and downtown areas will be activated with sidewalk sales, artists, and vendors.

“This summer is going to be full of fun activity in Downtown Kent,”said Gaila Haas, KDP Executive Director. “This is our first Friday night market and we’re excited!”

Visitors are encouraged to come explore our unique and wonderful downtown Kent!

This is a FREE, all-ages event.
