Chainsaw carving artist, Dayle Lewis, plans to attend the event again in 2015!

If you are a local artist or you know someone who is, please help Main Street Greenville spread the word. The Artisan Stroll will be in August this year!

The event has been moved from October to August as part of the organization's series of monthly First Friday events. This year's event will take place on Friday, August 7th from 6-9 pm.

The date of the event changed for a few reasons. The unpredictable weather and the lack of natural light during the evening hours in October were the main two reasons for the change. The committee hopes moving the event to August will assist with both of these concerns.

All local artists and talented creative people are invited to sell and/or demonstrate their craft during the event. The artists will join many downtown businesses who will stay open late for First Friday. The event is also scheduled to feature music, activities for children, and Chalk the Block (a community chalk-art contest for those who attend the event)!

The Artisan’s Stroll Committee is looking for artisans and crafters to display and sell their paintings, photography, handmade jewelry, dolls, children’s apparel, wreaths, flower arrangements and more during the event.

Registration to showcase and sell your items is $15.00 per space, which serves as a donation to Main Street Greenville, the non-profit community organization that creates the First Friday events for the downtown district. The deadline to sign-up is July 8th, 2015. For more information contact Susan Fowble at 937-548-1414 or

The committee is a group of dedicated volunteers (Patti Jetter, Kim Murray, Mary Saintignon, Fran Brubaker, Deb Niekamp, Nancy Person, Peggy Jasenski and Susan Fowble) who work closely with Main Street Greenville’s Executive Director, Amber Garrett.

Main Street Greenville is committed to stimulating and supporting revitalization efforts, historic preservation and economic growth in Historic Downtown Greenville.
