All the artists’ booths are now on Bridge Square instead of Riverwalk. Sesquicentennial Plaza and the adjacent parking lot remains the location for the food vendors/farmers’ market, although they had to squeeze onto the street surrounding Bridge Square yesterday because of the St. Olaf alum weekend beer tent.
It’s a more compact arrangement that centralizes the foot traffic and evidently is waaaaaaaay easier/faster for vendor-setup. I like it. Some panoramic photos:
