We shut down the street for a good 'ole block party, featuring local food, craft beers, bourbons, local and regional awesome vendors, and live music on two stages.
WHEN:     TBD in Fall of 2021
WHERE:   600, 700, and 800 blocks of East Market Street
TIME:       11:00am - 11:00pm 

For the past 11 years NuLu has been hosting it's well-known street festival celebrating the continued growth and revitalization of Louisville’s East Market District. Live music by sonaBLAST! Records, regional micro-brewed beers, and numerous food and retail booths by local vendors. There are activities for all ages. The event is free, family-friendly and open to the public.

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 two LEED® certified commercial buildings, many historic restoration projects, as well as several restaurants offering organic and locally sourced ingredients, NULU has emerged with a culture of sustainability.
