First Friday DownTown Market
August 3, 2018

“Tax Free Friday!”

Families are getting ready for Back-To-School and our downtown businesses are here to help this coming First Friday with tax free purchases, great sales, discounts, and back to school specials! Shoppers can also enter a free drawing to win one of several backpacks filled with school supplies, and they can enter once at every participating business to increase their odds of winning!
 
Friends of Spring River Zoo will be at Casa Bella (303 N. Main) with one of their amazing birds. Come see this beautiful creature, and find out how you can join “Friends of Spring River Zoo”!
 
DJ Hendawg Entertainment will be at Reischman Park (308 N. Main) to provide fun music and it’s great for dancing under the stars! The party will be happening there from 5:00-8:00 pm.
 
Free Face painting at Reischman Park (308 N. Main) provided by Great Looks Salon, and they will also be giving away free back-to-school hair care bags! (while supplies last)
 
It’s a relaxing walk to all of our downtown shops and if you get hungry for a sit-down meal, stop in at Big D’s Downtown Dive, Billy Ray’s, Cosmic Soup & Salad (now open!), El Toro Bravo, Martins Capitol Café, Papa Johns, Peppers Grill & Bar, Stellar Coffee, or Third Street Station BBQ – lots of choices all within easy walking distance!
 
It cools off in the evenings, and the weather is wonderful, music is in the air, and it’s a perfect chance to treat yourself to a rejuvenating and fun mini-vacation at MainStreet Roswell’s First Friday DownTown Market!
 
Please note: Children must be accompanied by an adult for safety when visiting merchants to enter the backpack drawing.

Our First Friday Downtown Market event is a volunteer-driven event sponsored by MainStreet Roswell and its stakeholders.  Our goal is to create a fun way to bring the neighborhood together and introduce Roswell residents to all Downtown Roswell has to offer.  With great local shopping and dining, as well as a strong art and music culture, this will provide a great way for people to connect and experience their community.

Select merchants will stay open from 5PM-8PM (or later) every first Friday of the month.  We want to create a monthly event that will grow into something great while encouraging people to shop downtown.  Enjoy a meal from your favorite restaurant.  Relax and eat while enjoying music from local musicians in beautiful Reischman Park!  Meet fellow residents and shop owners in the area.  This is a wonderful community event!
