ANNOUNCEMENT – May 10, 2024: The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District (EID) is hosting its sixth annual Sidewalk Sale Presented by Heritage Federal Credit Union on Saturday, May 11 from 9 AM – 2 PM.

The event, billed as Evansville’s longest street sale, will feature more than 120+ merchants, makers, entrepreneurs, and residents selling items on Main Street (from 2nd to Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd). Activities will include a floral arch backdrop for photo memories and the distribution of 400 free carnation flowers to mothers and mother figures in attendance. The photo backdrop and the carnation distribution will take place in front of the Innovation Pointe building at 318 Main Street. Carnation quantities will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Local musicians will perform along Main Street.

“This event blends two of the primary reasons why we organize events – to encourage consumer spending at Downtown businesses and to create memorable experiences in our neighborhood. Celebrate Mother’s Day weekend Downtown by supporting our local businesses and more than 120+ entrepreneurs and specialty vendors,” said Adam Trinkel, executive director, of EID.

In 2023 10 businesses opened or expanded in Downtown Evansville. Downtown stores and restaurants will be open and offering special deals. Food trucks Bruce Li and Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice will serve guests food. Downtown restaurants will also be open for customers. Public restrooms will be accessible for guests at the corner of Fourth and Main Streets.
