If you love arts and appreciate craftsmanship you won’t want to miss Main Street Greenville’s Jordan Agency Artisan Stroll on First Friday in August! The event will feature multiple different vendors, each offering art, crafts, or handmade items!
The event will be held from 6:00 - 9:00 pm in downtown Greenville on Friday, August 7th. “It will be a jam packed night, with so much to see and do,” said Susan Fowble, Event Chair Volunteer. “We are excited to see everyone downtown!”
Vendors will be set-up on the sidewalks in front of downtown businesses to showcase their items. The list of items offered include paintings, ceramics, jewelry, drawings, re-purposed home decor, photography, and much more.
In addition to the art on display, many activities and demonstrations will take place throughout the evening, such as live music at multiple locations.
The committee, led by Susan Fowble, have volunteered their time to work with Main Street Greenville to create the event.
“The Artisan Stroll is one of our largest First Friday events of the year and it would not be possible without the hard work of the committee. They begin planning this event well in advance to make sure there will be a wide variety of vendors and activities for all to enjoy,” said Ryan Berry, executive director of Main Street Greenville.
Flyers will be handed out the night of the event with the schedule and the locations of each vendor. Main Street Greenville will also post the information on their website and Facebook page for you to download or view before the event.
We will continue to take vendors until July 17. Click here for an application.
