First Friday DownTown Market
August 4, 2017

Tax Free Friday!

School is just around the corner, and this weekend is Tax Free shopping and Main Street Merchants are kicking it off this Friday! Many of the merchants will be offering tax free shopping, in addition to special sales, and some are giving away school supplies.

Be sure to enter our First Friday Drawing at every participating business you visit for your chance to win one of 2 backpacks stocked with school supplies!

The Gallery/Main Street Arts will be doing face painting. Kid’s Chalk Art will also be available! Uncle Sam (from Way Way Off Broadway) will be there too, performing patriotic readings and posing for selfies.  An old fashioned “School Marm” will be reading wonderful kid’s stories such as “Pete the Cat Rockin’ In My School Shoes.”

Stop by Reischman Park to hear wonderful music performed by B. Oliver.

There are lots of options for a great meal! Maize Gourmet will be selling fresh kettle corn at 2nd and Main Street in front of Ancients of Days all day. Antojitos Emmie Food Truck will be parked by Reischman Park. Stellar Coffee will be featuring their “Frosty Turtle” drink for something cool and delicious! You can also fill your tummy at one of our excellent downtown restaurants – Peppers Grill & Bar, Big D’s Downtown Dive, Billy Ray’s, El Toro Bravo, Martin’s Capitol Café , Third Street Station BBQ, and Papa John’s Pizza will all have plenty of delicious options and will be open all evening (as usual)!

Evening weather is wonderful, so join us for great music, unique shopping, delicious food, and spend a relaxing “mini-vacation” in beautiful downtown Roswell!

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 food truck or 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!
