We all know that in-person events have been scarce in Maine due to the covid-19 pandemic. However, this seems to be changing! And fast. One event you may want to check out is the First Friday, Art Walk which takes place in Portland.
But what is First Friday? First Friday is a way that local artists can come out and display their work to be seen by the public. The First Friday Art Walk started in 2000 and eventually blossomed into a monthly arts and cultural event that takes place on the first Friday of every month (regardless of weather). Art is spread throughout the city but is centered primarily in the Arts District. Over 3,000 people come downtown each month to visit galleries and museums, see live performances, buy work from street artists, and greet friends as they stroll along city streets.
If you wish to attend the next First Friday, It is scheduled to take place on Friday, March 4, 2022. hours are 5-8 p.m.
