ORCA MARKET

Downtown Mason
Market & Street Fair

An Open Air Market In Downtown Mason

ORCA Market is a festive family­-friendly, open-­air Mason street fair founded in 2018 where friends and families can spend time and immerse themselves in the downtown Mason community. This entertaining event will include live music, art, local produce and foods, kid activities, and a variety of vendors from across Mason and the Cincinnati area.

ORCA Market runs from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from May through August. The market is located outside of  ORCA Coworking at 408 4th Ave. Mason, OH. Free parking is available at Grace Chapel or on the street.

The Mason Authentic Leadership Team is a student organization focused on learning about leadership and developing their own authentic leadership through meaningful projects with community partners. In 2016, they presented a list of proposals for how to attract people to Downtown Mason and promote the community, and one of their proposals was to create a downtown market similar to what the ORCA Market has become. In 2018, they decided to partner with  ORCA Coworking as a student project to develop  ORCA Market in order to fill a need they both saw in the community. The Mason Authentic Leadership Team was responsible for planning the market and organizing  vendors for the  market in 2019. The market is a collaborative effort with many partners in the community including the Mason High School National Art Honor Society, the Mason Public Library , Mason & Deerfield Lifestyle Magazine, the Mason Deerfield Chamber of Commerce and the Mason Food Pantry.
