What is Market under the Stars? It is a celebration of the best local food and drink in Regina, a regular Market with RFM Vendors and their high quality wares, a display of our friendship with Regina Downtown BID with their events, fun eating competitions, and tastings. It is a relaxing time for all ages, but many couples decide to use it as a date night out. I had the joy of following two attenders last year and seeing it through their eyes made me even more fully appreciate what an experience it is! If you have never attended here is a short youTube made by our friend Josh Vogt.
So far we have fourteen vendors in the Tasting Area. They must all use a local component from the Market in their tastes. They are only allowed to charge one to two tickets per taste so you get a chance to experience a few different flavours. The pours in the Liquor Tent are tasting pours, 1/2 oz for hard liquor, 2 ounces for wine, and 4 ounces for beer. Last Mountain Distillery, Living Sky Winery, and Rebellion Brewery are your tastes and servers for the evening. We will be running an Celebrity Poutine Eating Contest, the first one to complete a big bowl of poutine will be the winner! Of course all in good fun we have some twists and turns to this contest!
Finally, we cannot thank our dear partners Regina Downtown BID enough for all the hard work, amazing events, and staff hours put into this event. Remember this year we have put the event on Thursdays. This is so we can pair with Regina Downtown Concert Series which we think will be a wonderful fit with the evening's other programming. The evening events will go as follows:
Yoga in the Park by Bodhi Tree provided by Regina Downtown BID: 5pm to 6pm
Celebrity Poutine Eating Contest, sponsored by Mr. Spudds Poutiniere: 6pm to 6:30pm
Concert Series provided by ReginaDowntown BID & Rawk Entertainment: 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Salsa Dancing Instruction by Regina Salseros provided by Regina Downtown BID: 7:30pm to 10pm
Remember there are still other dates coming up every two weeks until August 27th, 2015. I have never seen so many people have so much fun! See you on the Plaza, Thursday July 30th, 4pm to 9pm! Bring your appetite!
