The Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce is working on a monthly promotion to encourage folks to find out what Cedaredge merchants have to offer. The First Friday Art Walk is a self-guided art walk hosted by businesses along Main Street and other venues throughout town.
Beginning in May, on the first Friday of the month participating venues will offer free activities involving local artists, musicians, food and drink. The promotion continues through Sept. 1. Dates for the First Friday walks are May 5, June 2, July 7, Aug. 4 and Sept. 1.
The goal is to showcase local talent while encouraging people to support local businesses in the Main Street area.
The chamber is looking for businesses to host activities, artisans who want to be paired with local businesses, musicians willing to perform and people willing to serve as volunteers during each First Friday Art Walk. Sign up forms can be picked up at the chamber office at 245 W. Main.
For more information on how to participate contact Lisa Martinez, executive director, at 856-6961.
The chamber will host its annual meeting and awards banquet on Friday, March 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Stolte Shed, 388 S. Grand Mesa Drive in Cedaredge. Cocktails at 6 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $15 per person and the public is welcome to attend. Please RSVP to the chamber office at 856-6961.
