Alive After Five returns to Bandon Friday, June 22nd in Old Town Bandon!

Alive After Five runs from 5 to 8 PM and features art, music, food, refreshments and other activities. Many Old Town shops will be offering bargains as well. This month’s theme is Art Night. Sell some art, make some art, buy some art or highlight a local artist. Let the Greater Bandon Association know if you are an artist looking for a place to display or are a merchant interested in having an artist in your shop on June 22. A wine walk is one of the highlights of Alive After Five, and to participate in the wine walk, commemorative glasses and walking maps will be on sale for $10 at both Art By The Sea Gallery and Edgewaters, the opposite ends of the Walk, when the event starts at 5 PM, not before. Alive After Five will continue monthly through October on the third Friday of each month. There will also be a special edition of Alive After Five on the 4th of July.

The Greater Bandon Association is once again organizing the Alive After Five activities. Proceeds will benefit upcoming local public events in Bandon such as the Night of 10,000 Lights, Gorse Blossom Festival, Volunteer of the Month program as well as support GBA’s economic development initiatives. Call (541) 297-2342 for details, or check out the GBA website Here.
