FOX CITIES, Wis. (February 25, 2021) – The Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce has announced that Bazaar After Dark®, the Fox Cities’ popular night market, will return in 2021 with an event on Wednesday, July 28 from 5-10 p.m. along South Commercial Street in Neenah, pending a health and safety review later this spring.
“We are excited to announce that we are moving forward with hopeful planning for the return of Bazaar After Dark® along with our partners in the City of Neenah,” Fox Cities Chamber President and CEO Becky Bartoszek said. “As is the case with all events being planned during the pandemic, we are proceeding with caution and acknowledge that plans could change. But right now we are hopeful that this summer will be an opportunity to start bringing back some of our community’s most engaging cultural activities and outdoor events. Bazaar After Dark® certainly falls into both of those categories, and we at the Chamber recognize the important role we play in promoting quality of life in our region through events like this one.”
Bazaar After Dark® is a unique Chamber program dedicated to revitalizing and drawing positive attention to underutilized business districts in the Fox Cities region, while fostering community collaborations through art, music, and unique experiences. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, two planned night markets were canceled in 2020 – including in Neenah, as well as one in New London which has not yet been rescheduled. Previous destinations for Bazaar After Dark® have also included Little Chute, Menasha, and Brillion.
Bazaar After Dark® is an inclusive, family-friendly, free event. Attendees can expect to find food trucks, live art, and live music while browsing art and local business booths in a pet-welcoming atmosphere. Event details are still pending, and a panel of public health and medical experts will review plans closer to the event date, with the possibility of cancelation due to health and safety concerns remaining until further notice.
