Renaissance Covington is hosting an official grand opening in its new space at 2 West Pike Street.

Renaissance Covington is a small nonprofit aimed at revitalizing Covington’s historic downtown through urban art, local food, community programming and business support.

This year, Renaissance celebrates several successful city initiatives including Madlot, the pop­up performance park at the corner of Seventh and Washington streets.

Other efforts have included the weekly Covington Farmers Market, Art Off Pike, the Bike­Centennial Tour, Covington’s Urban Guide, the Underpass Rock Garden at Pike and Russell streets, and most recently, the successful Night Bazaar hosted in Roebling Point.

The Cov Bazaar held earlier this month was a big success.

Renaissance Covington expects 2016 to be another exciting year, as it kicks off the urban parklet competition, Curb’d ­ that encourages unique outdoor spaces that support local businesses.

Renaissance supports and encourages the strong community thriving in Covington and looks forward to even more growth.
