If you enjoy volunteering with the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association, dressing our October Witches might be a great activity for you. Every year we take our flying ladies out of the broom closet and spruce up their outfits for another year in the downtown. We are in need of donated pants and skirts this year, so if you have any spare clothing items, please contact us at events@astoriadowntown.com

WHEN: August 17th 9-11am
WHERE: The Armory Storage (1650 Exchange Street)
WHAT: Witch Dressing
DESCRIPTION: We are assembling witches on their brooms and updating their wardrobes. We have staple guns and equipment for use. Come ready to pick out wigs, hats, gloves, etc. to help the witches look their best for October 2024

This is a fun activity that directly helps our community, so if you want to join us, please email Lyra Stone at events@astoriadowntown.com – she’ll add you to the list.

New Sunday Market Interactive Map

2023-09-30T16:02:04-07:00May 31, 2024|Featured, News|

Sunday Market has a new interactive map that allows customers to find a specific vendor or just review who will be at the market each week. The map is finalized each week by Friday for easy weekend planning. To use the map, click on a vendor and their location lights up on the map, or choose a location and the vendor is highlighted in the list. Vendors have the opportunity put in a picture or their logo and a description of their business, plus social media links, which are viewable when their business name is highlighted.  We think it is awesome, check it out here!  https://www.astoriasundaymarket.com/vendors
