If you haven’t been to Franklinton lately, check out all of the changes on the second Friday of each month for Franklinton Fridays and the 400 Market.
The galleries, businesses, and institutions of East Franklinton will host an art crawl for the public, and new places will be opening regularly with the revitalization of this neighborhood. Check out the Facebook page for a map and to see the events of the featured businesses for each month. Events at businesses start as early as 4 pm, so you can head that way right after work. Some of the many places you’ll want to stop by include Glass Axis, Land Grant Brewing Co., Rehab Tavern, 400 Market, Columbus Idea Foundry, The Vanderelli Room, Ohio Art League X Space, and Strongwater Food and Spirits.
A big part of Franklinton Fridays is the 400 Market held at 400 W. Rich St. at 7 pm. This unique market features a variety of handmade vendors, food, performances, and activities. You can also check out the art exhibitions and openings in 400 West Rich.
