For a complete list of Bay-Waveland events (or pretty darned close), see our awesome Community Calendar!
8/24 - Thursday
On South Second Street, each Final Friday of the month a magical double-header delights Bay residents and visitors. The night market (see above) coincides with the opening of a new art show at Smith & Lens Gallery right next door. All of it's family-friendly! Think bikes and hula-hoops and children dancing to live music and adults shopping and visiting in our balmy fall air. This is why we live here and everybody else wants to.
9/2 - Saturday
If you don't perform, you'll have a grand time watching. Great food, good beer and a family-friendly environment in the coolest city on the coast. Did we mention there's no admission charge?
9/17-18 — Saturday/Sunday
9/20 - 23: Wednesday - Saturday
9/22 – Friday
