Folsom Thursday Night Marketplace is set to really hop this week!
Jim Crosthwaite, the event marketing promoter has an exciting evening planned for you. There is literally something for everyone, and a different theme each week.
Each event is a mix of entertainment, heritage craftsmanship and art. There are street performers, live theater, a kids zone, teen zone, adult zone, food and drink vendors and merchants.
The aim of Thursday Night Marketplace is to attract the Folsom community to a community event to be proud of, surrounded by the historic district, with special attractions, offers and fun.
Folsom’s own Kayla Hendry starts the entertainment on the main stage, at 6pm. At 6:45 pm, Moon Goddess Caravan performs over in the Plant Earth Rising lot and “Whiskey Dawn,” Norcal’s premier Country Band, plays from 7:45 to 8:45 pm, on the main stage. Later in the evening, they will be at the Powerhouse Pub.
Look for guitarists Lou-Anthony Limon and Ray Zhou along the street and for “Triple Threat” performing randomly throughout the event.
If you are into singing, or listening to other people who are, then be at the Wool-Sutter intersection for the Folsom Karaoke Championship, starting at 6:15pm. Cost to enter is $5 per person.
Folsom Mixed Martial Arts will hold demonstrations at 7:00pm.
