About First Friday

Enjoy an evening of drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, photography and other visual art. Take in diverse live performances, including music, dance and theatre and don't forget the exceptional shopping and dining downtown has to offer.

First Fridays are brought to you in partnership between the DSP, BID and Spokane Arts. First Friday is designed to showcase the downtown art and retail scene. Downtown retailers and restaurants have joined forces with DSP to stay open, feature artists and musicians and offer special promotions on the first Friday of each month.


Downtown First Friday happens inside the 40 block area served by the Downtown Spokane Partnership. This program would not be successful without the participation of downtown businesses.
