The First Friday Art Walk is a celebration of Nevada City’s diverse mix of galleries, artisan boutiques, retail shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, as well as our wonderfully artistic and creative community. Participating Downtown businesses will be open from 5 pm to 9 pm and many will host “receptions” with local artists, trunk shows, and/or performances. Many shops are also offering snacks and beverages as well as sales and specials only valid for the event.
It really is a perfect evening event for the family or a great “date night” destination bringing a celebratory energy to Downtown Nevada City while encouraging folks to visit our wonderful businesses while enjoying the art and culture that makes Nevada City so unique.
There will be live music and theatrical performances at various locations throughout the downtown area. In addition, there will be a Youth Arts Showcase featuring Artists between the ages of 4-18 with some fantastic prizes donated by local businesses, as well as a “Kids Zone” on York Street with some fun activities and art projects for kids of all ages.
Each month will have a different theme featuring different local music acts at the Boardwalk Stage and young acoustic musicians on York Street.
Join us in supporting our downtown businesses and our wonderfully creative arts community.
