First Friday

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, Art Square, Union Spaces, and more) to the new galleries on Main Street to the spaces on Commerce St., down to the whimsical offerings of The Funk House antique store, and the art galleries and vintage shops in the cottages on Colorado. You can always expect a diverse crowd, cool local art, live music, street performances and plenty of surprises!

First Friday takes place on the first Friday of each month from 5-11 pm. In addition to the programming and block party the First Friday Foundation provides as the basis for the event, individual shops and galleries around the neighborhood remain open late to celebrate along with the crowds. Preview Thursday, the night preceding First Friday provides a sneak peak at gallery openings and new art.
