|FIRST FRIDAY IN THE ARTS DISTRICT
The air is light, the spirit festive and the drinks cold in Downtown Las Vegas'
Arts District, where, once a month the pedestrian-friendly streets transform
into a huge block party on the FIRST FRIDAY of the month!
Each celebration, the entertainment shifts and multiplies as ice sculptors, fire
breathers and fortune tellers serve as a back-drop for this ongoing festival of
art perusal and appreciation. Local bands perform throughout the evening,
and the streets turn into canvasses for children (young and old) to decorate
FIRST FRIDAY is a stage for local galleries and Las Vegas' vital Downtown
It's a place to meet friends new and old, and rejoice in the preservation and
innovation of an historical neighborhood. In this land of suburbs and strip
malls, visitors come from near and far to people-watch, sample new
restaurants and revel at area bars.
Since it began in October of 2002, FIRST FRIDAY has only continued to grow.
It is now considered the premier arts event in Las Vegas. From the shops and
galleries on Charleston (the Arts Factory, S2, Modify and more) to the new
galleries on Main Street (Dust and Godt-Cleary Projects) to the recently
opened spaces on Commerce, down to the whimsical offerings of the Funk
House antique store, and the innovative artists' cottages at Colorado and
While many people love to walk the neighborhood and work is underway to
make the area even more foot-traffic friendly, the City of Las Vegas also kindly
provides arts tour busses that make rounds throughout the area, and make
pick ups every 15 minutes throughout the evening. And no matter how you
decide to get around, you can always expect a diverse crowd, cool local art,
live music, street performances and plenty of surprises!
Join us at the next FIRST FRIDAY and see for yourself what everyone is
