Free Market Square starts TONIGHT!
June 16, 2017

We welcome you to three weekends of local vendors, activities and performances as we reignite the legacy of Emancipation Avenue’s thriving Black business district. The EEDC’s Free Market Square is a temporary outdoor shopping and live entertainment market centrally located at the corner of Bastrop and Elgin.

From the newly renovated Emancipation Park to the newly renamed Emancipation Avenue, Free Market Square is here to add to the strength, energy, vibrancy and empowerment of Third Ward. Free Market Square is a free and family-friendly event curated in a space that encourages community, economic development, and growth.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram as we provide updates for our Free Market Square Live weekend kick-off happening Friday, June 16th from 4pm-8pm and Saturday, June 17th from 12pm-8pm.
