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.
Thank you to all who joined us for September's Virtual First Friday. We have videos and photography from local artists and entertainers including musical performances, digital photography, and a sculpture demonstration on our Virtual First Friday page.
For October First Friday, we are hosting another mural scavenger hunt that will be on October 2 from 12-8 pm in the Warehouse District. Learn more about October's First Friday scavenger hunt in the link below.
