Are you a night owl that always seems to miss those wonderful outdoor markets early in the day? Then you need to check out the Moonlight Market!

The Moonlight Market is happening this Saturday May 12 from 6-11 p.m. in the Gay Street District (1 E Gay Street Columbus).

This nighttime market is a monthly outdoor street festival/marketplace on Gay Street in Downtown Columbus. It takes place every Second Saturday from April through October.

The event draws thousands of visitors each month to enjoy the brick-and-mortar businesses in the area who stay open late with extended hours and special promotions, in addition to over 100 sidewalk vendors who pop-up to sell a wide variety of artisan products. Street musicians add musical ambiance and sidewalk patios come alive with al fresco diners.
