We would like to invite you to participate in First Fridays presented by the Downtown Business Council and Council for the Arts of Chambersburg. These events are designed to highlight the arts and are a celebration of what we have to offer as artists to our community and friends. Artists are offered a free space up to 10' x 4' to set up their art: along the sidewalk, with a rain site, May-Oct. There is no set-up fee, or commission on sales. The event will run from 5 pm 'til 8 pm and tear down should be completed by 8:30 pm. This is a family event; therefore be considerate of this when choosing your items for display. Remember this is an ideal time to market yourself. Have flyers, business cards, artists statements ready to hand out. It's also a good idea to have items of smaller value such as cards and miniatures, for sale at your booth.

Please respond soon, but by the preceding Friday at the latest if you would like to participate. You will be assigned a location in the week prior to the event. Please return a copy of this flyer to: Anne Finucane, Council for the Arts, 159 S. Main Street, Chambersburg, PA 17201, by the preceding Friday.
