Pop UP Pearl is this Saturday! The event will feature nearly 100 vendors representing local businesses, arts & crafts, and non-profits. Food trucks and live music round out the day which runs from Noon until 6 pm.
Limited parking is available. If you are able we encourage attendees to walk or bike to the event.
Vendor spots are going fast for this year’s Pop UP Pearl on July 13th in the heart of Downtown Old Brooklyn. If you are interested in having a spot this year, download the 2013 Pop UP Pearl Vendor Application and get it in fast!
Come on out and support your community! The best way to get to the event and get some exercise on a great summer day is by foot or by bike. See you there!
The date this year is a little bit later because of work being done on Pearl Road, but expect another great year of fun in Downtown Old Brooklyn!
