Thoughts on our community – The growth in Flagstaff shows, even on the East side! Fourth Street now has two crosswalks equipped with flashing lights (when the pedestrian chooses to push the button, that is) and safety barriers. Flagstaff Farmers Market evolved with the changing economy, and continues to provide locally grown, quality produce and other deals on necessity pantry items and so forth. We enjoy music from our community radio station on KSZN Radio Sunnyside 101.5 FM located in the community Market of Dreams on 4th St. and 7th Ave. With the summer months upon us. we welcome in the Sunnyside Community Market held in the Market of Dreams parking lot. Enjoy mingling with local residents in support of locally grown foods, and the like.
“Your Community Music School” is also located on that corner; Flagstaff School of Music has been locally owned and operated by Terry Alan and his wife Bonnie Dumdei. Serving Sunnyside, greater Flagstaff and northern Arizona for over 8 years, Flagstaff School of Music is always active in our community at festivals, plus other local events.
Private instruction is the main service provided at FSM, with a group guitar program for all ages. The music school’s purpose is to provide a quality music education, and therefore has very little retail on hand. The owners feel its purpose is also to build a strong relationship among the art community by supporting and volunteering at Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy and Orchestra Northern Arizona.
Involved in local economic development and supporting small businesses through Flagstaff Independent Business Alliance. Partnering with Northern Arizona Blues Alliance to educate students in the Blues to establish youth bands performing in Northern Arizona.
In support of local musicians and artists they have created a monthly event for the community, local musicians. The EastSide Show provides quality live music by area musicians and FSM students are able to perform as few or as many songs as they desire on the East side of Flagstaff, Arizona. We are found at White Dove Coffee and Flagstaff School of Music on the corner of 4th Street and 7th Ave. The EastSide Show is for local musicians to perform within a cozy atmosphere and intimate crowd.
We are putting a pause on the Art Market as of May 2018. However, we are always trying to encourage our community musicians, artists, and small businesses to be a part of The EastSide Show. If you wish to perform during one of our shows and/or would like to have a free vendor booth, simply fill out the following form below or you can contact us. This is not an open mic event as music is scheduled, changes throughout the day, and is promoted through social media outlets and such in order to grow an audience. Sign ups close 1 week prior to event date. It is our desire to have the Art Market up and running again soon!
