Allentown-First Friday-Craft Fair-2016-banner_1

Allentown’s gallery walk, known as “First Fridays”, has grown into one of the most popular monthly events in the City of Buffalo. Join us on the first Friday of each month from 6 to 9pm, where Allentown art galleries, performance artists, musicians, restaurants, retailers, and more come together to create a rich cultural attraction.


Applications are due by 5 PM, Friday, June 23th, 2017. Selected vendors will be notified via email on July 7th and the $40 fee is due by July 21st.

On August 4th First Friday’s in Allentown will be hosting an outdoor art & craft market and we are seeking artists and crafters to set up tables to sell their merchandise.

From 6-9 pm Allen Street between Franklin and Virginia Place will be closed to traffic and we will fill the street with handmade vendors of all sorts. We hope you will join us in a night of food, music, art and fun!

The cost for participation is $40 which will cover the cost of a vendors permit and will secure you a 10’x10′ space (enough to provide space for a standard 10’x10′ EZ up tent). We CANNOT provide tents, tables or chairs. We will do our best to help you locate one should this infringe on your ability to participate, but we cannot guarantee them.

To apply by EMAIL, send the following information to

  • Your name
  • Business name
  • Postal mailing address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Website URL
  • 3-5 images of your work. Images should be at least 4″ x 6″ 300dpi and in .jpg format as we will be using images by selected artists for publicity purposes.

Please also give a brief description of the work you plan to sell at the event (i.e. prints, clothing, ceramics, handbags, paintings, jewelry, etc.) as well as materials used and/or processes used. Be sure to include any details that might give a better understanding of the work (sustainable practices etc…)

Please note that all vendors are solely responsible for obtaining and tracking all sales tax related to the sale of their merchandise.
