July’s jumpin’ in Downtown Corbin

‘Taste of the Market,’ Corn Hole Competition top full schedule

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

After Thursday’s fun, festivities and fireworks during the Independence Day Block Party, how do you top the month best known as the sizzling center of summer?

In downtown Corbin, you keep the season coming with more events in July.

In fact, one of them’s happening Saturday.

That would be this month’s City Yard Sale, which is going on down Depot Street from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For folks looking to sell their old, new, used and unusual items, or for people wanting to find bargains or treasures, hundreds of them will be making the trek down Depot Street during the yard sale, which happens on the first Saturday of the month through October. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with setup free for anybody who wants to sell.

The remaining City Yard Sales will be held Aug. 2, Sept. 6, and Oct. 4.

Over at Nibroc Park, the Whitley County Farmers’ Market’s Corbin location kicks in big time, just as the summer produce is starting to reach its peak. The next four Tuesdays in July are packed with live music, entertainment, and a plethora of fresh-grown vegetables, fruits, meats and food items made and sold by local farmers.

Open Tuesdays through October, the Farmers’ Market in Corbin is open this month from 5-9 p.m. on July 7, July 15, July 21 and July 28. It’s located at the corner of South Main and West 1st Streets. A special event is gearing up just a week-and-a-half away, when on Tuesday, July 15, as the first-ever Farmers’ Market Corn Hole Competition will be held at the park.

If you enjoyed the first two City Streets events in May and last month, another one’s coming downtown on Sunday, July 20.

It features five blocks of South Main Street — from 4th Street up to Gordon Street — being blocked off to vehicular traffic during the afternoon. Officials with the Downtown Corbin organization say the event gives people a chance to “play in the street” and get outdoors during a Sunday afternoon. It features live music, demonstrations and bicycle repairs, plus games and a chance for folks to come downtown whether they walk, run, jog or use their bicycles, skateboards and strollers.

After this month, two more City Streets events will be held on Aug. 17 and Sept. 21.

The seventh month of the year’s almost over when Tuesday, July 29 rolls around, and that’s when Downtown Corbin’s 2nd Annual Farmers’ Market’s “Taste of the Market” event will take place.

Similar to last year’s smash show, “The Taste” not only features fresh food and produce along with live music. Participating farmers and food vendors affiliated with the Farmers’ Market will be cooking samples of their products, to give those at the event a taste of what they have to offer for sale.

For updates on July’s schedule of the Downtown Corbin-sponsored events, or for more information, you can find them at Downtown Corbin’s Facebook page.
