Allentown’s second bi-annual Night Market, hosted by local businesses is coming up on Saturday, June 1, from 7-11 p.m. in the 800 block of East Warrington Avenue.
The can’t-miss night of great food and exciting live entertainment includes three artisan markets, in outdoor and indoor spaces at 812 and 831 East Warrington Avenue and more than 30 unique crafters, vendors, and artists. Last year, visitors browsed through vendor booths selling items from bath soaps to one-of-a-kind bone jewelry to taxidermied mice while enjoying performances from Pittsburgh Circus Arts and Kabarett Vulgare Sideshow.
Another Allentown event this summer is the third annual ‘Taste of Allentown,’ hosted by the Hilltop Alliance, on Friday, June 14 from 6-8 p.m. This event, which showcases food from neighborhood eateries served at neighborhood businesses, is an opportunity to explore the Allentown business district and its unique businesses.
Ticketed guests will stroll down East Warrington Avenue, stopping at participating host locations: Black Forge Coffee House, Hilltop Pharmacy, Weeping Glass, WorkHard Pittsburgh, Dark Root Barbershop, Dr. Tumblety’s Apothecary & Tasting Lounge, Skull Records and more. Each host location will serve a selected food item, paired with a complimentary beverage.
Participating restaurants include: Leon’s Caribbean Restaurant, Paisano’s Pizzaria, Phat Girlz a Cookin’, Black Market Deli, Mi Empanada and Onion Maiden. The last stop will be in Alla Famiglia’s newly renovated ballroom to enjoy a spread of desserts and pastries.
