First Fridays to become First Saturdays in 2023

Last Updated 2/8/2023

First Fridays grew by 67% in 2022, hosting as many as 93 vendors around the square. We surveyed the community, and with over 350 responses, the majority was overwhelmingly in favor of moving First Fridays to First Saturdays from 10AM-4PM.

The Board is in the process of updating guidelines for registration and participation, and there will be a small vendor fee to register for each event this year. We are hoping to have these updates finalized in February with registration opening in March.

With an influx of shoppers and life to the downtown square, the main goal of First Saturdays is to boost the exposure to our downtown businesses, not just on Saturdays, but with the hope that the visitors and locals see something they like and come back.

From fresh produce to handmade jewelry, custom woodworks to food trucks, there will be something for everyone, across all demographics, this year, and we are very proud that this event has become such an inclusive venue for everyone and anyone in our community.

One visitor to First Fridays said, "I looked around tonight and did not see one person with a phone. I saw smiles, hugs, laughter, and communication. Tonight I saw friends, family, neighbors, and a community come together sharing joy, hope, healing, and love."

We can't wait to see how much this event grows again this year.
