Temporary Non Profit Space Rules and Regulations

• Even if you have participated in the past, you must complete an application for 2018.
• Nonprofit and other public or private entities deemed fitting by the First Friday staff will be assigned booth space on a case by case basis. Spaces are very limited. Nonprofits with a strong membership base or involvement in Canton and those with educational outreach related to the arts will be given priority spots.
• The space is intended to be an information and awareness booth, with an engaging arts activity such as children’s activity or art exhibit. ArtsinStark/First Friday can suggest artists-in-residence for hire who can assist with this requirement. Coloring pages will not be accepted as an arts activity this year.
• Fundraising efforts (such as raffle tickets, water, and t-shirt sales) are not permitted. There is no charge for a nonprofit space.

Last minute cancellation or a no show will affect your participation in future months. THIS INCLUDES WEATHER CANCELLATION. We produce this event monthly, all year, rain or shine.
• Acceptance of application is subject to approval by ArtsinStark and the downtown Canton Special Improvement District and is based on appropriateness of group and space available. Approval is for your entire application.
