Noel Night Market in Mt. Vernon, KY

The Rockcastle Arts Association’s Noel Night Market is an annual outdoor event in Mt. Vernon, Kentucky on the first Saturday in December. This vendor market is limited to vendors selling handmade wares, arts, and crafts. Our organization’s first goal has always been to support local artists by providing places where their work can be showcased, creating programs they can lead or learn from, and sourcing economic support for their art works and efforts. This event has grown over the years and now includes several food trucks and vendors, activities for children, the City of Mt. Vernon’s Christmas Parade. The Rockcastle Arts Association continues to partner with local leaders, groups, and organizations to host the Noel Night Market each year!

Come out and bring to kids to meet Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Grinch during the Noel Night Market after the parade! Everyone is welcome to take their own photos.
Santa will be outside of Cindy’s Place, while Mrs. Claus will be inside the Chamber of Commerce building where it is warm. She will be reading books and serving hot chocolate. The Grinch will be on Main Street to greet everyone!
