If you are new to Las Vegas or have never heard of First Friday, let us break it down for you.
First Friday began in 2002 as a way to bring life back into the downtown area. Back in the day Downtown Las Vegas was merely a place to gamble, hang out and enjoy some cheap cocktails. When Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh created the Downtown Project, Downtown Las Vegas began to see new construction, restaurants and art.
The first Friday of every month the arts district is flooded with a plethora of locals, visitors and those who are looking for a fun night with friends and family. The event officially begins at 5 p.m. and concludes at 11 p.m. There’s no cost to enter the festival and it’s appropriate for all ages.
The main focus of the festival is to appreciate the local art and music culture in Las Vegas. Many artists display or perform their creations. You will be able to view and purchase many forms of art such as paintings, sculptures, furniture, jewelry and other custom art.
If you’re looking to walk around and experience the culture, there’s plenty to see hear and taste. Many food truck vendors flock to DTLV to showcase their culinary talents on First Friday. No matter what you’re in the mood for, you will find it at First Friday.
Because First Friday is located in DTLV, you’ll be close to the hippest bar scene in town. Take the opportunity for some great cocktails and drinks by taking a Downtown Las Vegas pub crawl. Here, you’ll be able to experience a different culture than the typical nightlife club scene.
