The Miner Street Market debuted in 2020 in the Historic Downtown District of Idaho Springs. Local business owners, merchants, the City of Idaho Springs, and the Idaho Springs Chamber of Commerce pulled together to create an exciting, new atmosphere.
The goal of Miner Street Market was to create a safe, friendly, pedestrian mall-like space to allow businesses to expand outdoor dining and retailers to expand storefronts into the street while keeping sidewalks open and adding unique, common spaces.
Many local businesses used creative ways to enhance outdoor dining experiences. Now locals and visitors alike can choose to enjoy dinner + drinks + lightfare at picnic tables, or in renovated saunas, ice fishing tents, or even in a vintage mining camp setting. Some businesses also activated additional spaces around the outdoor dining with games such as cornhole (bean bag toss), ring toss, sidewalk chalk, and bubbles. Complete with live music throughout the summer to add to the ambiance.
This year the Miner Street Market will be returning for the summer with a soft opening the weekend of May 8th and the grand opening the weekend of May 28th. Open daily.
