There are many ways to participate in 3rd Fridays!

Artists, crafters, nonprofit organizations, and civic and community groups can set up tables for free -- see below to see if you qualify! Advance registration is required. At this time, we do not accept requests from corporate vendors; only handmade items and nonprofits, please. 


Artists and crafters can set up at no charge; however, advance registration and permission is required. Artists can showcase or sell, but if you do sell, we require that you collect sales tax, if applicable by law. For more information on Maryland sales tax licenses, click HERE.   

Please keep art PG-rated. Original artists only; please no re-sellers, or flea-market-type items. 3rd Friday is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.  You must provide your own table and chair.

Musicians & Performers

3rd Friday is booking live music and performances each month during the outdoor season.

 If you would like your group to be considered, please register below for 3rd Friday and additional performance opportunities.

NonProfits & Community Groups

Nonprofit and community groups are welcome to organize events at 3rd Friday or set up information tables with an activity to promote their cause. 3rd Fridays are a time and a place, and 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 registration via Active Network is required, but there is no charge to participate. Fundraising through raffles is prohibited, and the sale of food items is restricted to cottage food industry items only - see next section.  No bake sales or prepackaged food please :)
