    2020 Venue Guide

    Submit For First Friday


    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 paying an annual fee of $40. Renewing participants will be billed annually in January, and on a prorated basis based on first participation date.

    Downtown Spokane does not place artists for First Friday. Staff recommend that venues seeking new artists resource the Artist Roster through Spokane Arts.

    Artists who are not yet listed on the artists roster should contact Spokane Arts by calling 509.321.9614, emailing, or completing the online submission form.
