A new event series will be coming to Main Street in Danbury every Friday night throughout the summer.

Hearing about events happing brings so much joy - oh have we all missed this so much. CityCenter Danbury partnered up with Blue Haus Group, a Hartford-based real estate and economic development firm, to put on an event series all summer long called the "PopUp & Play" Event Series.

The series will be taking place every Friday from June through August and it will happen from 4 - 7 PM with the first one taking place next Friday, June 4.

There will be a variety of vendors along Main Street, some using renovated storefronts and others using outdoor space along the road. There will be retail vendors and different experiences such as Art Vibes which is a pop up paint-and-sip event (who doesn't love paint and wine) and things like table tennis.

According to a press release, some vendors already locked in for the month of June include handmade card business, handmade bathing suit shop, and pet-themed accessory shop.

The release states, "the intent of the activations is to provide a diversity of options to attract foot traffic to support local businesses still reeling from the effects that COVID has had on the local economy".

I think we can all say we enjoy the events that take place downtown and it's so nice to see that they are starting to come back. I hope to see you at an event there this summer.

Also, if you're a vendor and are interested in applying for a pop-up space, visit the Blue Haus Group website.
