The Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau will once again be sponsoring the Old Town Market event, which will be held on Friday evenings from 5:00 – 8:00 pm in the 100 block of South H Street. The event will feature live music, food booths, farmers market, vendors, free activities for kids and a different theme each week.

“This year, the event is running an hour later than it has in the past, which we hope will allow commuters and other members of the community who work late to be able to attend and enjoy the event,” said Chelsea Cochran, Communications & Program Director at the Lompoc Chamber.

The event will include two car cruises; on June 30 presented by the Lompoc High School Alumni Association and on August 18 presented by the Lompoc Police Department. A new addition is Lompoc’s first Open Streets event on July 21, which will have Ocean Avenue closed to cars and attendees will be able to walk, cycle, and skate along the street. This event is being planned as a partnership between the Lompoc Fire Department and the Lompoc Valley Community Healthcare Organization (LVCHO), with support from Explore Lompoc. Various activities will be available along the route, with a BMX show, mini bicycle rodeo and a kids’ bicycle drag race.

The other themed activities include Agriculture Night on July 7, with free seedlings from Plantel Nurseries and a free hay ride. July 14 is Performing Arts Night with live performances by local dance groups, coordinated by Alli Smith of The Alley Project Dance Studio. July 28 will see the return of the Family Fun Dog Show in conjunction with Pet Fest, and on August 4, the City of Lompoc will have utility trucks on display. August 11 is Visual Arts Night, where local artists will have their work on display in a variety of mediums, and August 18 is Public Safety Night which will feature vehicles on display from various public safety organizations.

Wine tasting in Centennial Park will be available July 14 and August 11, with local wineries pouring and live music in the park. The live music lineup includes local favorites like Brandy Sidecar, Dylan Ortega and Mitch King, Rock Cats Rock, the Kaitlyn Chui Band, Jacob Cole, Special When Lit, Toxic Red, Cellar Roots and Certain Sparks Music students.

Vendor applications are still being accepted. For more information, visit the Lompoc Chamber’s website at Lompoc.com or call the Chamber office at (805) 736-4567.
