The mission of Evolve Shepherdstown is to provide an opportunity for artists and entrepreneurs to expand their visibility in hip and historic Shepherdstown. Evolve’s space brings arts, quality goods, entertainment, and experiences to Shepherdstown visitors and residents.
Some pop-ups will feature recognized local artists and businesses and others will introduce artwork and products new to the Eastern Panhandle. But all the pop-ups at Evolve will contribute to the vibrancy of Shepherdstown and give visitors and residents even more to enjoy.
In addition to expanding visibility for those who are already established, Evolve can be a space to cultivate new works and ideas, an incubator for creativity of all sorts: an intimate space to perform a new song, show a film, have a meeting, teach a class, raise awareness, or honor a friend.
why our space
The Evolve shop is located at 106 West German Street, a prime location on the main street of this unique town. Over 70,000 tourists visit Shepherdstown every year. They come for one of the town’s festivals, to visit the Antietam battlefield, to hike, bike, kayak, or run a marathon. If you visit Shepherdstown, you undoubtedly pass the corner of King and German to shop or dine. Twenty feet west of that corner is where you will find the Evolve pop-up space.
In addition to the foot traffic along German Street, Evolve will actively promote pop-ups on our own social media platforms and will happily work with guests on other promotional opportunities.
