Friday Night Auction

One of the main sources of revenue for the Pettisville Park is the Friendship Days Auction where new merchandise, donated by area businesses, or handmade items are sold in the main tent on Friday, the first night of the Festival.

This summer's auction will start promptly at 6pm and runs late into the night, until all is sold. About 9pm the auction will pause while the Quilt Raffleis held.

Auction Donation Drop Off

If you have unique handmade items you'd like to donate to the park benefit auction, you can drop them off at RD Custom Apparel just north of the Pettisville Post Office. Businesses can leave their new merchandise here as well. Or contact Hersh to pick up your donation.
