About First Friday

First Friday Scranton is a 501(3) non-profit, volunteer-supported organization composed of a Board of Directors and Advisory Council that organize, promote and market a free art walk held on the first Friday of every month at dozens of galleries and businesses around downtown Scranton. First Friday features a wide variety of cultural events found in some of the city’s best restaurants and cafes, as well as galleries, boutiques, and other small businesses. All events associated with First Friday take place from 6-9PM in a walk-able, close knit footprint, though a trolley bus is available to provide shuttle service at designated stops.

First Friday serves as a conduit to artists, connecting them to prospective venues, art lovers seeking entertainment, and venues looking to attract new customers. All of these are unified under the vision of using the arts to revitalize downtown Scranton.
