First Friday ten year anniversary

Join local artists and musicians in downtown Las Vegas for the October First Friday where galleries will be open in the evening for patrons to peruse local masterpieces and mingle with the artists. This month's festivities celebrate the tenth anniversary of the arts event. In the Kids Zone, the public will be invited to help break 10 world records involving pumpkins in a single day. The second annual ‘Pumpkins Mean Business’ pumpkin decorating competition will offer prizes for the top 10 entries. Be sure to visit THE HUB - First Friday’s newest meet-up point and central hang-out on Casino Center and Colorado. Inside THE HUB you’ll find places to sit and chill, interesting art exhibits, music and poetry readings, and more.

In the midst of this 10 year celebration the First Friday Foundation will be born. The Foundation will be a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing local artists and inspiring civic art in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for upcoming details and opportunities to get involved.
