WE WILL HAVE THE MARKET IN JULY.
DATES in 2021 TBA
The Kearney Night Market started out as a local food truck rally and turned into so much more over the last 5 years! 2020 will be the 5th year in the making! Each year we grow so much more with the vendors and events that we have going on. If you'd like to be involved, click the vendor sign up below. If you have some questions, head over to our FAQ section at the bottom of the page!
TYPES OF VENDORS
Local Meat Vendor
Pretty much any kind of vendor you can think of! If you don't see your type of vendor, we may have more information in the FAQ! If you don't find it there, please contact us!
Honestly, it's pretty easy to become a vendor. All you have to do is figure out the size of space you will need (most people only need a simple 10x10 space which is $20 per market to sell whatever you would like within reason. Some things cannot be sold at the Night Market. Please check out the frequently asked questions section.
Those who choose to just attend the Kearney Night Market, get to do so for free! By free we mean we don't charge a fee to get in. The merchandise you want to purchase will most likely cost, so bring some money downtown to support your local businesses.
Also, come hungry! There's plenty of good food and choices for everyone!
