The Civic Plaza Sunset Market will be joined by Marble Brewery every Wednesday beginning July 1 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM as part of the ongoing entertainment series of Civic Plaza Presents!
This event will serve as the evening market’s official kickoff and visitors will be welcomed by a fun and eclectic experience, with diverse vendor offerings, including paletas, tacos, sandwiches, pies, cookies, and local greens, family-ready games and activities, live music, and, of course, delicious craft beer.
Named Small Brewery of the Year in 2014 at the Great American Beer Festival hosted annually in Denver, CO, Marble’s award-winning beer is an exciting addition to this mid-week market. Influenced by old world brewing traditions, yet modern in flavor and artistry, Marble will provide an all-new happy hour and community experience on the plaza. Marble Brewing Company celebrated two big milestones this year, including their seven year anniversary and the commemoration of canning their one millionth beer.
“There is so much life and love already at this market. Each week since our soft opening in May, vendors have been serving great food, creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind art, and more and more folks come out to play games, dance to music, and just have fun in the community. We’re thrilled for Marble to be a part of this,” said Paula Bauman, assistant market organizer.
Renowned instrumental hip-hop artist, Cloud Face, will be entertaining market-goers for the evening. He has found much success throughout the Southwest and beyond as a DJ, dance choreographer, painter, and music composer. Cloud Face is also a founder of “Foundations of Freedom,” which serves as a creative collective for upcoming street artists.
The Sunset Market is a project of the Civic Plaza Placemaking Project which is funded by Southwest Airline’s Heart of the Community grant awarded to DowntownABQ MainStreet Initiative with support from the Albuquerque Convention Center.
