#var:page_name# cover

Here it comes... our official kick-off of the First Friday season!

The first Friday of every month we stay open late to offer a pop-up market with lively entertainment, local art, food, and craft beer & wine.

When: Friday, May 4th 6pm-8pm

Where: Community Forklift - 4671 Tanglewood Drive, Edmonston MD 20781

Who: YOU! And your friends, family, kids, neighbors, co-workers, and (friendly, leashed) dogs. We’ve even had a few meetup groups and blind dates show up!

Cost: Free to attend - But you can support your local artists and businesses by purchasing their wares and tipping the band.

Come on by to catch our awesome lineup! We'll have....

Live music:
The Vico Cycle is back! A returning Forklift favorite, they are a DC-based rock band infused with the DNA of funk, blues, jazz, hip-hop and R&B.

Local Food:
Dinner from a soon-to-be-announced food truck, plus sweet treats from Pink Confetti!

A signature Pop-Up Bar:
Town Center Market is back again this year and is bringing an exciting selection of craft beers and wine to the 'Lift each month.

Local artists:
3 Peas Handmade Soaps will be here with their bath and body products. What originally was a hobby has now grown into a small family business comprised of a mom and her triplets.

Delia Mychajluk considers her art “an expression of thoughts and feelings about what I consider the ‘essentials’ of things, i.e., life/death, growth, and the boundaries between the physical/spiritual worlds. Connections between people and animals and people and the world of nature are also explored." She’ll be selling oil paintings, polymer clay earrings, mixed media art pieces, and notecards.

Denise & Richard Brown will be here with small oil paintings, prints, photography, note cards, and silver, bronze, & copper jewelry.

Marie-B Cilia De Amicis considers herself not an artist, nor a photographer, but rather “just a ‘button pusher’ who tries to capture the evanescence of the light and the bliss of the moment.”

Tish Murphy, of Details by Tish, makes jewelry from recycled materials like found sea glass, coins, and quartz. “I rebirth costume jewelry rescued from broken or discarded items. The hats and bags that I sell are previously owned but in like-new condition and embellished in some way.” Her collections are chakra and yoga inspired.

We’ll have an extra special 2-hour sale in the warehouse during First Friday. We'll announce the details online Friday afternoon.

Can't make it? Don't stress!
