The Walkerville Distillery District Night Market is back, in a new home.

It used to be located on Chilver Road, but this year it moved to Argyle Road between Brant Street and Wyandotte Street, outside of The Walkerville Brewery.

"In recognition of all the great work that the late Mark Boscariol did for our community, we want to keep this tradition going that he started many years ago," said the Walkerville Brewery in a news release.

The free, all-ages event will take place on the last Friday of each month from May to August, from 5 to 11 p.m.

There will be food, drinks and retail vendors, like Oxley Estate Winery, the Grand Cantina and Smellis Beard Oil.

People can also experience live entertainment at the evening.

"We want to continue to host community events that support local business and bring the public together for a fun-filled evening," said Walkerville Brewery co-owner, Mike Brkovich.

"It's traditions like these that make Walkerville such a unique and vibrant neighbourhood."

The market will take place May 31, June 28, July 26 and Aug. 30.
