Friday Evening Street Festival



Vendor spaces for the Friday Street Festival are FULL! We still have a few small spaces for nonprofits (no sales please). There are still VENDOR spaces available at Saturday’s Slow Living Expo!

The central block of Main Street will be closed to traffic to make room for food and craft vendors, entertainment, music and dancing in the street, and fun for all ages.

The Street Festival coincides with Gallery Walk and draws thousands of people looking for food, entertainment and more!
