How to Participate at First Friday

First Friday, an entity of the Carbondale Chamber, is a family-friendly community celebration that takes place monthly in the heart of Carbondale’s Creative District. Community organizations and non-profits are welcome to participate at First Friday with a booth. Due to logistics and space limitations, we cap participation at six booths max. At this time participation is limited to community organizations and non-profits. Per Chamber bylaws, First Friday is non-partisan and we work hard to keep First Friday neutral (no political booths). Click here to request to host a booth*.
