Depot Days kicks off in Jeffersonville's arts district

JEFFERSONVILLE — On Saturday afternoon, the culmination of art and community that Jeffersonville has been focusing on for several years came to life. Residents and visitors streamed into The Depot on Michigan Avenue, a new food/music/art venue in the heart of the NoCo Arts and Cultural District. Some carried lawn chairs to watch the Crashers perform. Others stood in line at the food trucks and bar, or made their way through the brightly-colored shipping containers where local artists showed off their craft.
