Downtown Covington to "Pop" this Holiday Season
Make Covington Pop will kick-off the organization’s inaugural holiday event in Downtown Covington on Friday, November 30. The four-week long project, held in Covington’s Central Business District along West Pike Street and Madison Avenue, will run from Friday, November 30 to Saturday, December 22.
Make Covington Pop begins at 5:00PM with a “Light Up Pike” ceremony on November 30, the grand opening of two pop-up shops and a holiday film screening. Various other events are planned for every Friday and Saturday for the first four weeks of December include an indoor makers market, winter bike ride, holiday storefront decorating contest, snowball match, and First Friday Gallery Hop.
Sponsored by Renaissance Covington, Make Covington Pop is a community-driven effort to restore creativity, pride, energy, and vitality in Covington through the creation of pop-up shops and art galleries. The program is aimed at revitalizing the city’s urban core by attracting entrepreneurs and artists and encouraging them to activate vacant storefronts along Covington‘s main corridors.
