Get up close and personal with MAX Marketplace artists and their work
One of our most popular attractions in the MAX Community Pavilion, the MAX Marketplace, is back for its second year and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Marketplace will be featuring some of your favorite artists’ pop-ups from last year plus a variety of new ones. This is the place to get your hands on awesome merchandise, direct from the artists themselves.
Marketplace is scheduled for 9:30am to 4:30pm on Friday, October 20th in the MAX Community Pavilion. Be sure to mark it down in your schedule, you’ll want to have plenty of time to peruse these unique and vibrant shops.
