Tell me more

Grab your friends and head to historic downtown Springfield, TN, to enjoy live music, food trucks, a kids’ zone, specialty vehicle cruise-in, plus shopping with 80+ local farmers, artists, makers, boutiques and your favorite downtown merchants. This beloved event has been charming visitors since 2017, growing in popularity each year! The best part: proceeds from this event are dedicated to the beautification of our historic downtown and beyond!

This event has proudly supported projects like Central Bark Dog Park, the bike racks on Main Street and 6th Avenue, decorative banners around the Springfield Town Square Historic District, the lighted Merry Christmas signage over Main Street, lighted holiday displays around the Robertson County Courthouse, installation of new power outlets at decorative light poles around downtown, and decorative Jail Alley improvements.

Vendor Applications for the 2024 season of 1st Friday Night Markets opened on February 1, 2024! All year, May 3 and June 7, 2024, vendor application periods have closed.

A completed application does not equal acceptance into the event. Vendor space is limited. We use a juried selection process for vendor selection and work hard to ensure we have a great lineup of diverse food options, makers, bakers, crafters, artists, farmers, boutiques and other local businesses.  


Specialty vehicles of all kinds – new trucks, old cars, fast bikes, and everything in between – are invited to show off those polished wheels, that souped up engine, and the dice on the mirror.

No pre-registration required. Spaces are available on West Court Square and 6th Avenue on a first come, first serve basis.

Vehicles must enter event using Locust Street to 6th Avenue and must arrive before 5:30pm to participate.
