A year-round art walk, featuring the shops, galleries, restaurants, and organizations in the Arts District of Richmond, VA.

Tap anywhere to begin.


Downtown Richmond's long-standing monthly art walk happens year-round on the First Friday of every month. Galleries, shops, restaurants, non-profits, and more open their doors in celebration of art and community. First Fridays is a signature event in the city's Arts District. Hours are generally from 5pm-9pm, though each location may have separate hours.


First Fridays is presented each month by the Downtown Neighborhood Association. DNA is proud to continue RVA's premier art walk event, in service to our mission within the neighborhood.


We are proudly sponsored by the University of Richmond, Altria, and Venture Richmond.
