The lineup for this weekend is here !!! 💚🪩🅿️

Art, vintage, handmade & food vendors will be hanging out in our parking lot this Sunday 11-4!!! Come for the best vibes & to support your local friends!!

We feel like this Sunday is our grand re-opening. After a month of being closed and attending art festivals in the area, we needed some deep rest and took time for deep reflection. We jumped into this journey head first 11 months ago (HOW??!!?) and it has been a ride to say the least. There’s so much we’ve learned in that time and this month has given us space to make the necessary changes to help this be more sustainable for us and the collective.

We have sooo much new inventory, a full sticker wall, summer picks, new artists & a newly curated space for you.

We hope you will celebrate these changes with us by coming to see what’s new & supporting our friends out in the parking lot THIS SUNDAYYY. ✨🅿️🖤🏠

Shining some light on our presenting sponsors—Our Future, David Maier and Matthew McGrane!!!

“Our Future is a paid fellowship program that equips emerging leaders with the tools they need to be valued and empowered advocates for justice, sustainability, and equity. We invest in those who face social and economic barriers to service and advocacy work by giving them resources, a livable wage, professional mentorship, and connections to local organizations. Through our program, fellows turn their ideas into reality and grow as powerful agents of change for their communities.

237 Collective and Our Future share similar goals of uplifting youth and marginalized voices through community-building and creative means. We are excited to sponsor the Epoch 237 Collective Fashion Show in dedication to making Linn County a safe and empowering space for all.“

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor for all the work they do in our community!
