Downtown First Friday happens inside the 80 block area served by the Downtown Spokane Business Improvement District.
First Friday promotions are paid for by the Ratepayers of the Downtown Spokane Business Improvement District (BID). Venues located outside of the BID are not eligible for BID specific First Friday promotions.
Venues located in Kendall Yards are eligible to participate in promotions through Greenstone, a dues paying member of the Downtown Spokane Partnership (DSP), which serves as the program manager of the BID.
Find an Artist
Downtown Spokane does not place artists for First Friday. Staff recommend that venues seeking new artists resource the Artist Roster through Spokane Arts.
Find a Musician
If you are interested in having a local musician perform in your business on First Friday, visit the Professional Musicians AFM Local 105.
