First Friday A.R.T.S. Market Application
First Friday A.R.T.S. Market is a curated fine art, handmade craft, vintage and culinary market during the First Friday Art Walk in the Roosevelt Row Arts District. A.R.T.S. Market is one project in a series of A.R.T.S. projects to activate downtown streets in the Roosevelt Row district by putting them into productive use.

First Fridays is a free monthly artwalk initiated by Artlink, Inc., a volunteer-run non-profit arts organization. The First Fridays event has grown into one of the largest free monthly artwalks in the United States and it continues to grow and evolve. More than 15,000 people come to downtown Phoenix to experience and enjoy First Fridays. First Fridays occurs rain or shine.

If you're looking to vend on 2nd Street or 5th Street during First Friday (or a past vendor looking to reapply), please download and read the artist guidelines and information (here: ) and fill out the application below. Please do not email a PDF. If you are approved, you will be automatically added to next month's new vendor waiting list and emailed an invitation when space becomes available. Our team reviews applications once a month and sends out accept/decline notices the week of First Friday for future months. Please apply only once and allow time for review, as we receive a large volume of applications.

*Please also note* If you are applying to sell items that you did not hand craft or create yourself you will not be approved. Our market model caters to the selling of fine, handmade arts and crafts. Pre-made and/or independent distributor style clothing, beauty products, and bulk screen printed materials, etc. do not fall under this model. We are not currently accepting applications for food or beverage sales. If you own and operate a food truck and would like to know more about opportunities to park and vend, please email Kat Moore at

Booth assignment process:
WEEK 1) Priority - Returning Vendors
Invitations are given to approved returning vendors from the prior month. Confirmation for return participation is requested. If open booths become available, vendors on waiting list or new vendors are not invited to participate until week 2.

WEEK 2) Priority - Returning Vendors and Waiting List
All applications from new vendors are reviewed, with priority given to those on new vendor waiting list from prior months. Returning vendors sent invitations (if booths are available from the previous week) should respond by this time to claim their their spaces. No response by end of week 2 = space open for brand new vendors.

WEEK 3) Priority - Waiting List and New Vendors
Notification of acceptance or denial is given to new vendors, pending spaces available. If no space is available, vendor is put on waiting list. All applications are reviewed, all invoices sent out

WEEK 4) No new applications accepted - Booth numbers sent out to paid invoices
During the 4th week of the month, there is insufficient time to process new applications. Returning vendors or vendors on waiting list will have received invoices on week 4. If booth space is left unpaid, space is offered to next person on waiting list.
