First Fridays
The Carrollton Main Street Program holds networking meetings the first Friday of each month. The meetings are held at a different downtown location and are open to any merchant within our program district to attend. First Friday Meetings are a great way to hear about the latest updates or happenings, network with other merchants and check out each other’s businesses.
