June’s installment of Local First Lexington’s Coffee Meet-Up series will be held next Friday morning, June 14 at Martine’s Pastries. Our topic is Making Neighborhood Events Work for Your Business. Our local expert this month is Chad Walker, from Walker Properties and The Warehouse Block, which will host The Warehouse Block Party next month.

Summer festival and block party season is here! From business association events like Southland Street Fair 2019¬†and Chevy Chase Shops Street Fair to nonprofit festivals like Woodland Art Fair and Lexington Roots & Heritage Festival, summer happenings can bring crowds to your neighborhood. Let’s talk about ways to make nearby events work best for your business.

At the Coffee Meet-Up, bring your horror stories, your successes and at least one idea that has worked for your business or nonprofit organization. This is not a class, but colleagues getting together to spur one another on. Bring an idea, a question, or even a real struggle that your business has faced, and let’s work together to solve it!
