Want to plan ahead for visits to Saturday’s Celebration Markets based on musicians?

Sarah Dicus, a community development specialist for the city of Sulphur Springs, has this year’s slate of musical artists set for Saturday evenings, at the second of the two downtown markets each Saturday.

The downtown markets begin their second week this Saturday and run through the end of September.

“We have a Daylight Market from 8 a.m. to noon on North Gilmer Street in between the banks. We are going for a traditional market feel in the morning,” she said.

And, if you’re not an early bird, or have other business, come back in the evening. The Celebration Market will be on the plaza from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. each Saturday.

Celebration Market will run in the evening hours for handmade arts and crafts, and will be located on the plaza.

Multiple food booths, both cooked meals and canning and gardening items, and a variety of arts and crafts, can be found on the plaza.

“The format is the same, with food vendors, along with home-grown and homemade products and live music,” Dicus said. 

Musicians for each Celebration Market will play a two-hour set during the market, with a break or two during that time.

Dicus said the music usually starts between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., depending on the heat.  When it gets hotter, it may start at 7:30 p.m.

For a list of musicians for the concerts, and the types of music they play, see the May 19 News-Telegram.
