In Partnership with First Friday Celebration

Join us downtown during First Fridays, at the Adrian Armory Events Center. We’re part of the “Give Thanks” First Friday Celebration, and the expo is open to the public, free of charge from 4-7 pm on Friday, November 1, 2019.

FREE admission tickets are available from participating vendors, or through the Adrian Chamber office.

We are teaming up with the Gallery of Shops and other downtown merchants who participate in First Fridays to showcase local business specials in time for the holidays. The Business Expo will feature some of our local businesses, and we hope you would consider stopping in to visit with them to see what they have to offer! We have arranged the Visit Lenawee shuttle van that will make designated stops between downtown locations.
