The mission of First Friday Milwaukie is to improve the commercial health of locally owned business in Milwaukie so they might prosper, while simultaneously fostering a vibrant community.
In order to stay true to our mission for 2017, we are requesting that vendors sell only locally-made goods OR represent a local business. Franchises/consultants for large companies will not be accepted.
– This is a FAMILY-FRIENDLY event. Please ensure that anything being sold is appropriate for all ages!
– You will be designated a 10×10 space. Vendors are responsible for tents, tables, chairs, lighting, etc. Electricity is available as are porta-potties.
– Hours for the event are 5 – 9pm, however, if you are busy and would like to stay open you can do so on your own accord until 10pm.

If you do not show up you will forfeit your ability to be a vendor in future months!
