What are F1rst Fr1days?
A special day per month where many businesses stay open longer to offer free or low cost entertainment, sales, promotions, and more to the community. Many communities have found great success with First Friday Events. The series increases foot traffic, which generates more customers, awareness, and dollars for businesses and provides a lot of fun for the community.
Plus, participants will receive a passport, scavenger hunt, or a similar task and once they complete it by visiting each participating businesses. They will get a chance to win a prize typically worth $50-$100.
Everyone can also experience free activities, live music, and more coordinated by Main Street Wellington and partners. The activities will either be in the Main Street office, a business, a vacant space downtown, an alleyway, or in the Town Hall/Square.
First Fridays aren’t just for retailers and restaurants. Many service businesses like insurance agencies, chiropractors, hair salons, etc. enjoy success with First Fridays. How? When you host an activity, contest, give-away etc. It enables you more time to interact with people [especially after hours.] It is a great way to do outreach and have fun, which can grow your customer base.
Are you a Business That Wants to Get onto the Passport?
The following fees are to participate in the 2022 Series.
BUT- You do need to have a brick and mortar business in Wellington to be on the passport. If you are an at home business, or located outside of Wellington, we encourage you to sponsor a month, or partner with another local business location to participate.
