You may be wondering...

When is the next first Friday?

First Friday's usually start in April, but we'll see when we're allowed to have our first one. November is the last First Friday every year. Thats when we get ready for events like the Lighting of the Square & the Christmas Parade.

When do I apply for this year's First Fridays?

Apply right now!

The way it works is you apply for each event two months in advance. So April's application will be live in early February etc.... You can't apply for the whole year. It's month by month and nobody is guaranteed a spot. This keeps it fair. They fill up extremely quickly so make sure to apply the first day.

To help your chances of being accepted try to think of something really unique you can do at your booth that will create a fun atmosphere for the people. (If you just hand out pamphlets, you probably won't make the cut.)

Food Trucks have a separate application

Food truck requirements can be a little different than the average booth, so you'll see the application here below or on our Apply page. Contact Tracie about that.

Do you want to sponsor these events? We need you.

That is seriously the best news we've heard! We can't do these events without amazing sponsors. We all know that a great way to promote your brand is to sponsor something awesome. Any of these events will be no exception. If you'd like to support the community by lending us a financial helping hand, talk to our Executive Director Andrew Heath. No pressure, but we really can't do them without you.
