Brick Street Market hits Main Street for the 31st consecutive year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 14.
More than 175 exhibitors from the Midwest will showcase their variety of arts and crafts.
Jewelry, clothing, pottery, metal works, a glassblower and many upcycled items will be available in the booths lining Main Street.
“It’s a pretty good variety,” said Julie Johns-Cole, Zionsville Chamber of Commerce executive director. “Ceramics, woodworking, just about every media.”
The event brings 10,000 to 12,000 people annually to the town.
“It’s a nice way to showcase Zionsville,” Johns-Cole said.
Visitors are encouraged to park at town hall to catch a shuttle to downtown Zionsville. The shuttle will run from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Food trucks and vendors will be sprinkled along Main Street from the south to north end. Nacho Mama will return along with others selling steak sandwiches and various street fare.
Erica Carpenter from Five Thirty Home will offer a demonstration at 10 a.m. at an entertainment area at Cedar and Main Streets, followed by blue grass group Guitar Banjo Band playing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Silly Safari will return with four different animal shows for kids from 1 to 3 p.m.
The night before the market Blooming Life Yoga Studio will again host Mats on Main “celebrating the beauty of community bonding and yoga in Zionsville,” according to Lily Kessler, owner of Blooming Life.
