Holiday Market on Birch Street

Thank you for coming out for the 2018 Holiday Market on Birch Street!

RVMS hosted the 3rd Annual Holiday Market on Birch Street on Thursday, December 6th from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. The Holiday Market offered Rozzidents and visitors alike the opportunity to celebrate and shop for the season in our neighborhood, featured live music, local vendors, and delicious treats.

Birch St was shut down to traffic and opened to pedestrians, food, and caroling. Visiting vendors sold all kinds of items: everything from soaps, to local art, pottery, recycled cashmere goods, and more. The surrounding shops and restaurants were open and offering wonderful gifts, food, and drinks with some of our local food establishments vending treats and tasty beverages in the courtyard!

Thank You to our Entertainers!
