Downtown Columbus

Even though winter came and went without too much grief, it’s fun to think about some of those spring activities like sidewalk dining and strolling around downtown. What better place than Gay Street to celebrate the warmer weather, and this Saturday Moonlight Market will kick off your festivities. zerOz: Less Wallet – More Cool sits in the middle of the action, and they’re giving one lucky person a limited edition wallet so keep on reading to find out how to enter to win.

Moonlight Market is a monthly outdoor street festival/market place on Gay Street in Downtown Columbus. It takes place the second Saturday of the month, April through October. Brick-and-mortar businesses in the area stay open late (pssst…and offer special promotions), and more than 100 sidewalk vendors pop-up to sell a wide variety of artisan products. You’ll find handmade jewelry, t-shirts, specialty food items and everything in between.

Whether you’re looking for fine dining, comfort food or just a slice of pizza, Gay Street offers some of the best dining in Columbus. Grab a seat at one of the sidewalk patios for some al fresco dining as you listen to the street musicians who keep the festivities lively. Check out more event details on the Moonlight Market Facebook page, and follow them on Twitter and Instagram.

Just in case this is your first Moonlight Market, we want to let you know it’s easy to get there. The market takes place primarily on Gay Street between Front and Fourth Streets, which makes for easy access to many transit options, including car-share, bike-share and COTA. There is also ample on-street public parking and private parking lots and garages within a short walk. For more information about getting around downtown, click here.

So, we promised a giveaway—we’ll get to that—but all of you are gonna want to head over to see Paul at zerOz because he has designed some special wallets to help celebrate the kick-off of Moonlight Market. Jump to our Facebook page  and tell us where you like to hang out along Gay Street, and you will be entered to one of three special wallet compliments of zerOz.
