The Grandview Hop returns this summer for its 12th year, hosted by Destination Grandview and the Columbus Young Professionals Club on Saturday, June 24, July 29, and August 26 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. A bonus “Holiday Hop” has been added for Saturday, December 9 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. too!
The Grandview Hop is Grandview Avenue’s Summertime Sidewalk Market and Evening Stroll spanning a half-mile stretch of Grandview Avenue from 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue. Each month, the event buzzes with live music, local art, eclectic shopping, delicious dining, and indoor/outdoor strolling on the last Saturday from June through August. Participants can visit independently-owned shops and explore an eclectic array of sidewalk merchants and food trucks.
Beer lovers can rejoice in the fact that every month the Grandview Hop features our Pop-up Beer Garden – with 100% of proceeds donated to local charities – and relaxed open container laws* for the evening that allow you to enjoy the event with beer in hand as you visit the pop-up booths along the route. (*Please note event signage indicating where you can and cannot bring your drink during the event, as the open container laws only apply to certain areas surrounding the beer garden).
Pop-up Beer Garden sales will benefit the Tri-Village Mentor League (June 24), Ronald McDonald House Charities (July 29), and Columbus Inspires (August 26).
The first Grandview Hop of the season will take place on Saturday, June 24th. It will feature more than 60 pop-up vendors in addition to the more than 50 brick-and-mortar merchants on and around Grandview Avenue. Enjoy live music from The Collaborators, The Jumbo Chimps, and Jenny Flory all evening long. And the all-new Food Truck Food Court will feature Explorers Club Food Truck, SNO-OH, Mr. Hummus, Double Dulce and Outsiders Pizza, in addition to Mrs. Turbo’s Cookies and Ohiyo Chocolate.
The Grandview Hop is supported by Market District Grandview Yard, Destination Grandview, CYP Club, The Arlington Bank, CityPulseColumbus.com, and Samuel Adams Brewing of Ohio.
