November is Native American Heritage Month and Downtown Bangor is kicking the month off the month a few different ways, including shopping, art and performances.
'First Friday' in Downtown Bangor this Friday, November 5th is going to feature a performance by Firefly at the Bangor Arts Exchange. There will also be a showing of Wabanaki Artwork at 30 Central Street.
Firefly's performance is highly influenced by his Native American culture and performs a modern take on his ancestral music, which includes drumming, vocals and light show.
This Saturday, November 6th, there will be a pop-up native art market at 21 Main Street in Downtown from 10 AM - 4 PM. Not only will there be lots of visual art to look at but there will also be live performances in Haymarket Square. This event will be free and open to the public. If you'd like to be a vendor in this pop-up event for Saturday you can be a part of it for free due to sponsorship of the event.
Details on Saturday's Pop-Up Market are available at the DowntownBangor.com event page dedicated to Saturday's event.
