Dublin will launch Pop-Up Dublin on July 30, a rotating retail and art experience in Dublin city centre.
Pop-Up Dublin, 63 S. High St., will be held every Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. from July 30.
“This destination will add to the vibrancy of historic Dublin by supporting local retailers and artisans, while providing shopping options for residents and visitors alike. This initiative also aims to encourage more pedestrian activity along the South High Street,” said Lindsay Weisenauer, Dublin’s Director of Communications and Public Information.
Its two days are to coincide with the Historic Dublin Business Association’s ‘Wander Wednesdays’ and ‘Stroll Saturdays’.
Its opening hours also overlap with Dublin’s designated outdoor refreshment area, or DORA, so customers can grab a drink while shopping downtown, Weisenauer said.
Pop-Up Dublin vendors are expected to rotate regularly and include a variety of products including clothing, jewellery, personal care products and confectionery.
Up to eight vendors can occupy the site at any one time, and vendors should be located in the home, garage and yard weather permitting, Weisenauer said.
In addition to vendors, local artists and musicians are to be featured on occasion.
Pop-Up Dublin vendors are to be housed at 63 S. High St., a property the city began leasing on July 1, for a one-year term, to pilot Dublin Pop-Up, Weisenauer said.
The residence was built in 1836 and is known as Richards House, for Polly Richard, who occupied it in 1946 and is a descendant of Horace Tuller, who built the residence known today for its red trim and its beds of annual geraniums.
A vendor calendar for Pop-Up Dublin shall be posted and updated online at popup.dublinohiousa.gov.
