All about FSEA


Our goal is to improve the quality of life and small businesses for Evansville’s patrons by: facilitating professional, courteous, and efficient delivery of municipal services; developing partnerships which bridge the gap between the public and private concerns: and enhancing and revitalizing Evansville’s beloved Franklin Street. Franklin Street is a historical part of Evansville, and now a center for day to day activities and entertaining night life. 



Our mission is to encourage, coordinate and enhance the development and promotion of quality art, small business growth and entertainment of every variety. We foster creative endeavors throughout the community and will position Franklin Street as a leading center for art, culture and entertainment.



One way we accomplish our mission is by putting on many events throughout the year.  These events provide entertainment, business growth, and art for everyone.  Some of our popular events include the Franklin Street Bazaar, Mardi Gras Bar Crawl, and Color Me Fun 5K.



The Franklin Street Bazaar is our version of the Farmer’s Market, but Franklin Street style!  The Bazaar includes local grown produce, art, music, crafts, food, and so much more.  Interested in being a vendor for the 2015 Bazaar?  Contact us today to find out how you can get involved! Read more...
