September First & Third Friday’s


Have nothing to do on a Friday night? Come and check out First and Third Friday’s at the Fagatogo Marketplace. The live entertainment by Leone Methodist Youth (09/01)) and Fa’ilolo Methodist Sunday School (09/15) starts at 6:30 pm, but you can always come earlier and treat yourself to the best Samoan food on island as recognized and awarded by South Seas Broadcasting in their “2015 Best of American Samoa survey” or browse and buy a handicraft gift for a friend.

You can make it a family event or socialize with friends! Don’t forget to indulge in live music, handicrafts, farm fresh agriculture, and cultural cuisine. And as always, we encourage you to support local businesses first.

WHEN: September 01 & 15

WHAT TIME: 6:30 pm to 9pm
