Welcome to First Friday Raleigh

First Friday is celebrated on the first Friday of each month at locations throughout Downtown Raleigh. Art galleries and studios are open late with rotating exhibits and artist talks. Exhibitors feature artists, music, and special offers. Retailers offer deals and refreshments. And restaurants feature First Friday-only specials. There's something and somewhere for everyone. See the full list of downtown's public art here.
