Community Forklift

Lifting up communities through reuse




4th of July

Join us at the warehouse on July 5th for a rockin’ weekend event!
On the first Friday of May through September, we stay open late and bring you live music, local art, funky food trucks, a mystery sale, and a pop-up bar. This is the real “Forklift After Dark” experience!

Live music from The Janine Wilson Band.
Janine is back again this year with music that will speak to fans of rock, alt country and all sounds that resonate within the fabric of classic American music. Her creds include being honored with 10 Washington Area Music Awards (Wammies)!
