Every First Friday of the month the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association and our members stay open late and invite you to explore our shops, enjoy live music, try our excellent restaurants and bars, and of course, see local art.
We proudly showcase our business members. Please contact us if you are a paying member of the BKBIA and would like a booth.
In order to get a vendor space for First Fridays, you MUST be a member of our Business Improvement Association. The requirements for that are two-fold. You must first have a brick-and-mortar shop or office located within our district, and two, you must have a business license with the City of Long Beach and pay into our Association.
Our policy and contract with the City of Long Beach does not allow us to accept outside vendors because it creates competition with our paying members as well as congested sidewalks and other issues.
Non-Profit Organizations, Religious, and Political Parties:
While we cannot support any religious or political parties, the First Amendment allows for freedom of speech. If you are a religious or political party, you may find space on the sidewalk on the west side of Atlantic Ave between Burlinghall Dr. and Carson St. If you are a non-profit organization, please contact the BKBIA directly to discuss a potential location to setup. There shall be NO blocking of sidewalks, ADA ramps or access ways, or blocking of any access to a business.
