Holiday Bazaar is theme for this 3rd Friday


The monthly 3rd Friday event in Downtown Salisbury returns this week and the theme is Holiday Bazaar, which means it’s all about shopping.

It’s our last 3rd Friday outdoors for the season, so it’s the last chance to stock up on locally made arts and crafts for the holiday gift-giving season!

On the Plaza, artists, crafters and non-profits will fill the streets with fine homemade treasures for everyone on your list!  The main stage will feature live music by the Bay Brass Ensemble, and other holiday treats.  Salisbury Art Space will be on the Plaza doing special holiday craft for kids, and be sure to stop by their public reception for the 2016 Affordable Art Show and the opening of their Holiday Bazaar, another great place to find locally crafted gifts.

On St. Peters Street, St. Peters Episcopal Church will host “Pray, Eat, Sing!” The night will begin at 5:30 with evening prayer, a perfect way to end the work week, followed by caroling in the courtyard at 5:30, 6:30 and 7 with their very own Peter’s Voice. The historic church will be open for tours, plus they will be serving homemade chili, cornbread, burgers and dogs hot off the grill all evening.
