Goods on Goodale

Goods on Goodale: An Art + Retail Marketplace

Winter and Spring in Columbus were brutal. If ever we as a city deserve to be treated to cloudless, sunny skies, it’s this summer. And what better way to enjoy said weather than, say, a stroll through the park and some gleeful, vitamin-D-drenched shopping? The perfect setting: Goodale Park, of course, during the new Goods on Goodale series.

Here’s a prettily painted picture (this is, after all, the Short North Arts District): lush park greenery neatly lined with booths from Short North Arts District retailers, local artisans, and other Columbus vendors. Live music and performance art and family-friendly art programs (oh my!), curated by the Short North Arts District’s own Blick Art Materials. Grab a friend, have some brunch, then head to Goodale Park. This is the new monthly pop-up art and retail marketplace you need this summer.

The inaugural season kicks off on Sunday, May 20 and continues on June 17, July 22, August 19, and September 16 near the Goodale Park Gazebo from 12:00pm to 4:00pm each date. Bonus: on July 22 and August 19, Goods on Goodale will coincide with the Goodale Park Music Series as presented by the Short North Civic Association. Need we say more?
