Ship First Fridays is a collaboration of local nonprofit groups aimed at getting people out and about in the community and having fun. In 2022, this event runs from April through October.

Join the Cumberland Valley Rails-to-Trails Council at Ship Station for food trucks, a beer garden, and live music. Proceeds from First Fridays at Ship Station benefit the Cumberland Valley Railroad Museum.

You will find locally made and hand-crafted goods at the Shippensburg Art Market which will be relocating to Ship Station in July.

Check out one of the community events or stop by a partner business (look for the SFF logo in the window) and take advantage of the discounts and specials offered that day!

Don't forget, in Shippensburg borough Ship First Fridays have a relaxed open container ordinance so you can take your beverage from one event to another!*
