In 2008, the Arts Council (now ArtsGreensboro) launched First Fridays in downtown Greensboro. The project brought downtown merchants and artists together on the “first Friday” of each month to celebrate Center City Park and support the vitality of downtown.
Now co-hosted with Downtown Greensboro, Inc. (DGI), these popular evenings of entertainment offer everything from pop-up events to impromptu street performances, drawing thousands of participants to this free self-guided tour of downtown Greensboro’s shops, local art galleries, studios, museums, and alternative art venues on the First Friday of every month from 6-9 pm.
For businesses in the downtown BID district, participation in First Fridays offers promotional and advertising opportunities, as well as a listing of your event at FirstFridayGreensboro.org.
Whether you are a business looking for a First Friday artist to partner with – or an artist looking for a First Friday venue, ArtsGreensboro can help. Contact Arts Greensboro for more information.
