Pop Up Prairie Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 9 on the library lawn in downtown Sallisaw, and is free to all vendors.
The Sallisaw Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the event. Judy Martens, the chamber executive director, said this downtown event is the outcome of a workshop held earlier this year. Deb Brown of SaveYour.Town encouraged chamber members to try different projects to bring life to a small town and to get people enthused about their small town.
“We’re pleased that Main Street is already trying some of her suggestions,” Martens said about the Main Street organization’s Thursday Night Locals in downtown Sallisaw.
Martens said Pop Up Prairie Day will have three areas for pop up stores. There will be areas for foods, for flea market tents and a retail section that will include new arts and crafts. Individual spaces will be about 10 feet, or about the size of a pop-up tent.
Musicians are also invited, and it is hoped will provide entertainment while performing under the gazebo on the library lawn.
Martens said the chamber will coordinate efforts with the Sallisaw Farmers Market, held every Saturday and Wednesday morning in downtown Sallisaw.
Application forms for Pop Up Prairie Day will be available on the chamber’s website by the end of the week. Martens said those interested should stay in touch with the chamber’s Facebook page to download an application form. Forms will also be mailed upon request.
