First Friday is designed to showcase the downtown art and retail scene. Downtown retailers and restaurants feature artists, musicians, specialty food and beverage as a special promotion on the first Friday of each month.
Map of Events
First Friday promotions are paid for by the Ratepayers of the Downtown Spokane Business Improvement District (BID). Venues located outside of the BID, and within the greater downtown area, may participate in First Friday promotions by joining the Downtown Spokane Partnership Membership, by paying an annual fee of $25, or by paying $5 per individual First Friday. Fees will be billed upon submission of First Friday events, annual fees will be billed per calendar year starting in April.
Regular venue participants are encouraged to purchase a $100 sidewalk banner, the annual fee is waived with the purchase of a banner during purchase year.
