“Mezzanine” Spring Vintage & Vinyl Fair

The Parks is thrilled to kick off our 2024 event season with a Spring Vintage & Vinyl Fair at the Marketplace Plaza.

More than a dozen of the region’s best vintage and vinyl vendors will converge on the spacious plaza. Come to hear local record aficionados spinning tunes; purchase vinyl; browse vintage wares and clothing; and enjoy this new public plaza. Stop into Whole Foods Market for a bite, or visit JINYA Ramen Bar for a special cocktail or bowl of ramen (details coming soon). The event is free and all are welcome. Friendly dogs must be on a leash.

RSVP here.
