2017 Argyle Night Market: July 6 – Aug 31

Back for a fifth year! Come enjoy fresh food, local vendors, and multi-cultural entertainment each Thursday night, July 6 – August 31st, 5-9 PM, right in the heart of Uptown’s Asian Marketplace – Argyle Street! Part farmers market, part street festival, this vibrant and award-winning event is located on the city’s first and only shared street in Chicago.

CLOSING NIGHT – JVN NIGHT

Each year, the Argyle Night Market honors John “Vietnam” Nuguyen on the closing night of the season, also known as JVN Night. John was a young hip-hop artist and activist who drowned in 2012 trying to save a friend. He grew up on the the 5000 block of Winthrop Avenue in Uptown, now known as “Honorary John ‘Vietnam’ Nguyen Way”. John served as a mentor and role model to many Uptown youth, and we are pleased to continue the tradition of designating the market’s closing night in his honor.
