Argyle Night Market

July 6th is Opening Night for the Argyle Night Market, which is a cross between a street fest and a farmers market! Enjoy this celebration of “Asia on Argyle”, a unique corridor featuring Southeast Asian-owned businesses. Especially exciting for this year’s Night Market is a brand new “Shared Street” streetscape – the first in the City of Chicago! This shared street creates a plaza feel, encourages slower car traffic, and is more inviting for pedestrians and cyclists. The Night Market is on Argyle between Sheridan and Kenmore.

Free Bike Valet

Our bike valet hosts are Uptown Bikes, an Uptown institution for 25 years. This summer they will again expand to a special Argyle Pop Up Shop at 1124 W. Argyle! The free bike valet at Uptown Bikes will close at 8:45 pm, so please make plans to pick up your bike before then. Thank you.
