Programs & Events

FIRST FRIDAY GALLERY OPENINGS from 5pm-8pm

On the first Friday of every month, the majority of local galleries and retailers open their doors free of charge to the public to debut new art exhibitions or showcase new products. This community event draws thousands of visitors through the area in one evening. In the warmer months, gallery-goers can be dazzled by street performers, dine from a food truck, and enjoy live music in the streets. We're open from 6pm-9pm every First Friday of the month throughout the entire year. Come join the fun and support local artists!
