(Edmonds, WA)After a busy summer, two City programs are wrapping up the season: Walkable Main Street and the Uptown Evening Market.

“This summer’s Uptown Evening Market and Walkable Main street have brought our community together in new and exciting ways, showcasing the best of what Edmonds has to offer,” said Mayor Mike Nelson.

The Walkable Main Street program concludes this weekend, Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th.

The street closure area runs along Main Street from 6th Avenue to 3rd Avenue. Vehicle U-turns will continue to be allowed around the Fountain, with clear pedestrian pathways protected by metal crowd fencing.

A reminder that additional parking has been added at the following locations:

  • Public Safety Complex at 5th/Bell
  • Behind/below City Hall
  • Adjacent to City Hall on the south, accessible by the alley (ADA parking will be added here)

Look for wayfinding banners along the closure barricades along with flyers that invite visitors to visit shops and restaurants in the Walkable Main Street area as well as throughout the downtown core.

The third and final installment of the popular Uptown Evening Market takes place on Thursday, September 9th from 4pm to 8pm (please note the earlier end time). The market is located on 236th Street between 84th Avenue West and Highway 99 (behind Safeway).

Live music for this date will be:

4:15pm – Ian Dobson “Pan Leggo” on steel drums

6:30 pm – Mariachi Fiesta Mexicana

Once again, a variety of vendors will be on hand selling items like produce, locally made crafts, and food items. Food vendors will be present, with plenty of free parking available at Edmonds Lutheran Church.
