The Markets at Round Lake announced that Death Wish Coffee Co. will be a major sponsor for its inaugural two-day indie craft and artisanal food and drink marketplace in August.
The event marks a major change for what used to be an arts and crafts festival, organizers said.
The Markets at Round Lake will run Aug. 13-14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. It will feature four distinct, highly curated markets: an indie maker market, a progressive craft market, a used books market and artisanal food and drink market.
It will benefit Round Lake Libraries.
The Markets at Round Lake will take place throughout the center of the historic Village of Round Lake. Victorian cottages with gingerbread trim separated by open green spaces will provide the backdrop to what is being called “the shopping experience of the summer,” organizers said.
After hosting a more traditional arts and craft festival for over 30 years, the Woman’s Round Lake Improvement Society, presenters of the inaugural Markets at Round Lake, decided it was time for a major change.
