In Goshen, Indiana you can find an above average number of visitors to the downtown area the First Friday of every month. First Fridays are a big deal in Goshen, and a fun tradition for those who live there as well as those who are just visiting. Run by Downtown Goshen, Inc., First Fridays always have a theme and fun activities to check out.

The theme for April was Spring into Action:

Spring into Action | April First Fridays

“Eat, Drink and Shop for a cause in April, and simultaneously support your favorite downtown business and Goshen nonprofit.

Visit participating restaurants, bars, and merchants who’ve sponsored a Goshen-area nonprofit, and 10% of your First Fridays purchase will be donated to a partnering charity. Select downtown businesses will host kids’ activities this evening dedicated to getting together and giving back.” 

The Imagination Spot chose to partner with ADEC, and donate 10% of their Friday sales, and we are so grateful. If you haven’t been to The Imagination Spot, you can find the beautiful little shop on Washington St., almost across from The Electric Brew. (111 E Washington St, Goshen, IN 46528)

“You will be able to find fun stationery, gifts, art supplies as well as custom stationery in our shop. Come look through our range of designer albums for monogram stationery, party invitations as well as wedding invitation suites. We also offer completely custom designs to fulfill your specific needs.”

The Imagination Spot also has online shopping available for those who aren’t nearby, visit

Huge THANK YOU to The Imagination Spot!
