Second Night Market to Feature Two Bands, DJ and Children’s’ Activities

The second Chelsea Night Market will take place this Saturday evening, July 13, in the parking lot of Luther Place – bringing a wide range of food, vendors and live music to an enlivened downtown.

The first Night Market seized upon momentum built by the Pupusa Fiesta in April, and coordinators believe they’ll have another great crowd to bring foot traffic and excitement after hours.

This month, DJ Tempo Suave will return, and there will also be two live bands performing.

Sus will perform a variety of 70s rock and funk tunes, while The Group Activity looks to bring something new and exciting to the table – and one might find themselves in the act by the end of the night.

The band describes its act as, “The band blends folk, blues, and reggae to bring you a well-planned and often-improvised musical experience that relies on you for co-creation.”
