2023 Argyle Night Market

5:00 – 9:00PM
ARGYLE (Kenmore to Sheridan)


We’re looking for Food & Retail Vendors!  APPLY HERE






Started in 2013, the Argyle Night Market is an annual event that features food from local Argyle restaurants plus live cultural and musical performances on Thursday evenings each summer. This free outdoor event draws an average of 3,000 – 5,000 visitors each week and continues to grow in popularity. Part market, part street festival, this vibrant and award-winning event is located on Argyle, the city’s first shared street. This event is hosted by Uptown United.

In addition to the delicious Asian street food that can be found at the night market, a highlight for our guests is the live cultural and musical performances being offered weekly. In partnership with Elastic Arts, we are able to bring live music, dance, and the arts to Uptown. As this is a free event, our goal is to make sure that ALL feel welcome at the market.


Uptown United & the 48th Ward invite you to join us this summer for the return of the Argyle Night Market! After 3+ years of a pandemic, we ask for your patience as we rebuild Argyle and the Market. Our small businesses continue to face difficulties and staffing challenges, which could mean fewer vendors at the market this year. Don’t fret! Our Argyle businesses are open! They are ready for you to order ahead and stop by in person every Thursday evening so let’s show them some community support.  The market will continue to feature weekly live entertainment including a diverse offering of musical acts and cultural performances.
