First Friday
Friday (5/5), 6-9pm

First Friday is a monthly event happening on, yes you guessed it, the first Friday of each month! This self-guided tour of downtown Raleigh was started to give locals (and visitors, alike) a chance to check out the cultural hot spots of our city! Local art galleries, studios, museums, boutiques, and restaurants stay open later for First Friday!

While you’re wandering about, keep an eye open for the First Friday Flags to easily tell which venues are participating! And be sure to ask about First Friday specials. Check it out!
