First Fridays

Sunbury First Fridays

The First Friday of the Month | May, June, July, September, October, November
3:00 pm-7:00 pm | Market Street and Cameron Park

Businesses on Market Street are invited to open their doors and bring business to the sidewalks of Sunbury. SRI Members not located on Market Street are invited to set-up shop in Cameron Park, where you can enjoy live music.

We have found in talking to residents, current members, and past members, that one of the events people ask for the most is the “Late Night Shoppers” event held in December. Using this information, we have come up with a plan to help bring residents to the downtown, which will in turn assist our local businesses. Our local businesses will have an opportunity to promote themselves and take advantage of this boon in foot traffic. The timeframe of 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. gives shoppers enough time to get out of work on a Friday afternoon and make it down to Market Street to take advantage of the sales.

Business owners who are located along Market Street are encouraged to set up sidewalk sales and do special promotions for the afternoon/evening to entice people to shop in the downtown. Cameron Park is available for SRI members who are not located on Market Street to come set up so they can still take part in the event. Alcohol is not permitted in Cameron Park.

To accommodate for this event, the City of Sunbury has graciously agreed to cease meter charges beginning at 3 p.m. on the days of these events.
