A little about the Thursday Night Market:

Explore Downtown Chico’s Thursday Night Market weekly, April through September from 6-9pm on Broadway from 2nd to 5th Street including City Plaza.

Farm-fresh produce, delicious food, arts and crafts, and live entertainment! Held weekly (rain or shine), the market is a street festival and CDFA Certified farmers' market. The market area is closed to vehicle traffic to ensure the safety of guests and due to State of California regulations, ANIMALS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT THE MARKET.

Browse a wide variety of unique shops with extended hours on Thursday nights...or dine at one of Downtown's wonderful restaurants or quaint cafes. Streets are lined with more than 100 popular vendors. Authentic crafts and artwork, handmade clothing and jewelry, mouth-watering prepared foods, personal services and community organizations are just some of what you'll find. Plus, certified farmers offer the season's freshest assortments of fruits & vegetables, bouquets of fresh cut flowers, nuts & honeys, houseplants and more! The whole family will enjoy an evening at the market - with balloon-twisting clowns, face painters, inflatables and other hands-on activities, the market is a thrill for young and old alike.

A diverse selection of local musicians and entertainers showcase their talents each week. Performances range from magicians to African dancers and from classic jazz to bluegrass.

Avoid parking hassles and be green!!! Ride your bike and use the FREE Bike Valet parking service provided by Chico Velo Cycling Club, located near the intersection of 3rd & Broadway.
