Last month big news broke about a new shopping and event venue being built in Cherry Valley called 'The Bricks", and even though the space isn't close to being finished yet, cool events are happening there.

As a proud Cherry Valleyian, I am ashamed to admit that I haven't stalked the new area being constructed along State Street in Downtown Cherry Valley in the last few weeks. In my defense, I think most of the action is actually taking place indoors right now, but my stalking game is high when it comes to the action on Facebook.

If you remember, The Bricks hosted their first-ever Cherry Valley Market back on July 4, 2021, and from the looks of the pics posted on Facebook, it was a big success...

So what do you do when you host your first successful event at a new venue? You schedule some more, of course!

These Cherry Valley Markets are actually being put together by a business called Champagne Events, which will also be handling all events at the new The Bricks Venue Center in the future. Their Facebook says they  "specialize in weddings, corporate events, farmers' markets, and private events", so I'm looking forward to more big, beautiful things happening in the CV soon.

I just took a glance at Champagne Events' website, and it appears like they are already booking weddings, parties, and corporate events for Cherry Valley's new venue, so you better hop on booking your date if you want to be one of the first events when it finally opens!
