    For the 11th year NuLu is hosting it's well-known street festival celebrating the continued growth and revitalization of Louisville’s East Market District. Come enjoy live music by sonoBLAST! Records, regional craft beers and spirits, and numerous food and retail booths by local vendors. There will be activities for all ages. The event is free, family-friendly and open to the public.

    NEW this year...we are making two big changes to the festival this year.  First, we will be 'book-ending' Market Street with our music stages, yes this means more local awesome music, and entertainment.  Second we are moving vendors into the middle of the streets in order to showcase the architecture of the buildings and the awesome businesses in them.

    The East Market District, also referred to as NULU, is now best known for its art galleries, unique specialty stores, antique shops and a growing number of upscale restaurants. The term “NULU” is a portmanteau meaning “New Louisville.” As home to many historic restoration projects, as well as several restaurants offering organic and locally sourced ingredients, NULU has emerged as the city's "hot spot" to shop, eat, drink and spend time with friends.
