Join us downtown for our
Artful Spaces Tour 6-9pm
Ever wanted to tour some of downtown Delaware’s loft apartments? See some unfinished spaces that have been untouched for thirty years?
These sites and several other downtown locations not typically open to the public will be part of this year’s Main Street Delaware “Artful Spaces” tour. Currently, nearly a dozen locations are scheduled to be part of this peek into the past.
The self-guided walking tour will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 5. Tickets for this peek into the past are $10 per person. Tickets are available now online. Tickets also will be available at the Main Street office, 20 E. Winter Street, during the June 5 First Friday celebration. A small service fee of $1 per ticket will be charged for online or credit card sales. All tour sites will be designated by balloons and hosted by Main Street volunteers able to share some of the location’s rich history.
Also during June’s First Friday celebration, local artists and artisans are invited to set up on the downtown sidewalks to sell their works, creating an “Art-Full Downtown” to accompany the Artful Spaces tour. Booth spaces are available for $35 per 8-foot section and may be reserved by registering online. (Vendors will need to provide their own tables.) All proceeds from the evening will support Main Street Delaware’s efforts to preserve and promote the city’s historic downtown.
As always, the monthly downtown celebration will feature free children’s activities and extended shopping and dining hours for everyone. On June 5, youngsters will be invited to add their artwork to downtown Delaware by decorating the sidewalks with original chalk drawings. Their work will be good practice for Main Street Delaware’s July 3 First Friday celebration, which will feature their annual sidewalk chalk art competition.

In addition to coordinating each month’s First Friday celebration, Main Street Delaware oversees the Downtown Farmers’ Markets, flower pot program, holiday parade, and more.
