The City of Jeffersonville has officially cut the ribbon on The Depot. This shipping container park with a lot of flair is the city’s newest entertainment venue, located in the NoCo Arts & Cultural District.
“We started working on this about five years ago and it really was a collaborative effort,” Redevelopment Director Rob Waiz said. “Just having a nice venue like this, it’s really going to be great for the Arts and Cultural District.”
To celebrate, the City will host Depot Days on four consecutive Saturdays from October 23 – November 13, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Visitors will be able to check out the art vendors, while listening to live music. There will be food trucks and a bar serving beer, wine, seltzers and a specialty drink.
“We wanted to have a special venue where not only artists could have a little village to show off their wares, but a place locals will want to bring friends and family to and a place that will draw people in from out of town,” Mayor Mike Moore said.
The City is very appreciative of SoIN Tourism for being a huge donor and supporter of this project.
“It’s a transformative project that appeals to visitors as well as residents, where people can come down and have hands-on arts and cultural experiences,” SoIN Tourism Chief Marketing Officer Luanne Mattson said.
The gate on it is locked. Will it be open to the public, or only open for special events?
