Musician Information

3rd Friday books at least one band per month, during the summer months, and has other outlets for local musicians to perform.  If you would like your group to be considered, please email band description, an electronic demo (reverb link, etc), and the duration of the set you are interested in performing to 3rdFridaySby@gmail.com

Non-Profit Organizations, School Groups and Community Groups

Outside groups are welcome to organize events at 3rd Friday, or set up information tables, to promote their cause.

3rd Fridays are a time and a place; a forum for creative expression, and civic involvement. We welcome groups with ideas to contact us. From dance performances, to art projects... show us what you got!

Advance Permission is required, but there is no charge to participate. Fundraising options are slightly restricted, raffles and the sale of food items are discouraged. 

For Registration: Email 3rdFridaySby@gmail.com

Food Vendors

At this time, 3rd Friday does not allow outside food vendors, or the sale of food items for fundraising purposes.  Bake Sale Items and Foods Items not approved by the Health Department are prohibited.

IF you are a food vendor that would like to request future consideration at 3F, please email us.

For-Profit Businesses, located outside of the downtown area, participation is restricted in order to maintain the spirit and purpose of our event as a community arts and culture festival, not a trade show.  However, businesses can still participate in 3rd Fridays in creative ways.
