What time does the Kearney Night Market start & end?
The Kearney Night Market officially starts at 7pm, but our vendors start setting up at 6pm. The market officially ends at 10pm, but if people are still out and about, we encourage our vendors to stay and sell their products or services as long as people are there!
What does the Kearney Night Market cost to attend?
If you're coming down to enjoy time with friends and family, while embracing local vendors, it's absolutely free!!! If you're wanting to become a vendor for the event, there is a cost associated with that. 🙂
How can I become a vendor for the Night Market!?
The easiest way for you to find out information about how to become a Kearney Night Market vendor is to go to our vendor page. You can do that by clicking on the "Vendor Registration" button on the top right of this website or by going to this website address: http://KearneyNightMarket.com/Vendors
Can we carry alcohol around on the streets?
No, currently the City of Kearney does not allow open containers on the streets. During our special events, we will have a beer garden (a social drinking space confined within barricades). So, if you go inside of the Cunningham’s beer garden to grab a beer, you’ll need to drink it there and then come back to the market!
How can my organization sponsor the Night Market?
The easiest way is to go to our sponsor form, located right here: http://KearneyNightMarket.com/Sponsors - There you will be able to tell us how you’d like to be involved and then we’ll be able to team up directly with you!
