Hey there Artists and Musicians of the Central Valley!!! I hope you know how important you are. Without you the world would fall, utterly, and completely under the shadow.
Thank you for choosing to participate in an Art Hop in Downtown Hanford!! Hanford was once the Valley’s cultural hub, the hot-seat for Blues, Jazz, and Country, and there’s a lot to suggest it will be again soon. So thank you for helping us to get there.
About the Hop
Art Hop is 6-8 pm the 2nd Tuesday each month in Downtown Hanford. Anywhere from 6 to 13 shops participate any given month, keeping their doors open, and filling their shops with local art, live music, or both.
The Art Hop businesses are going to start putting more attention into promoting the Hop, and I ask that you also make a large self-promotion effort, posting in the #HopHanford Facebook Group, and sharing to your personal pages, and art pages.
Here’s the link to the #HopHanford Facebook Group:
Please endeavor to post a few times leading up to Your Hop! And always make sure to introduce yourself, say a little about who you are, and where you’ll be, and on what day. If you are on other social media platforms, please post there, too.
And don’t forget to invite your friends, and family via the ‘invite’ option in the event page!
If we all work together it’ll be less work for all, and I wager we’ll see the results fast!
Below are some post ideas. Get creative, have fun! When I see you post something I haven’t thought of, I’ll add it to the list! If anyone needs help with ANYTHING AT ALL I’m easy to reach.
