All About First Friday

Interested in more information about First Friday? Keep reading!

As many of you are most likely know, First Fridays happen in Missoula on the very First Friday of every month (except for usually January and sometimes July). Did you know that Arts Missoula actually does not organize First Friday? Our job is to advocate and advertise First Friday events.

Each individual business, gallery or participant operates their own gig when it comes to being open on the First Friday evening of every month. It is completely up to the business/gallery owner how they go about showing artists work, seeking artists, hosting the event, etc. Missoula’s monthly art walk is simply an agreed upon event that businesses decide to participate in. TIP: Many First Friday participants list their events on the Missoula Events Gallery Guide which is embedded on our website. Click here for the link! Many organizations post to this Missoula Events website which Arts Missoula then uses to inform our First Friday eNewsletter! Questions? Please do not hesitate to call our office at (406)-541-0860. We are here to help! Interested in promoting your First Friday opening? Email becca(at)artsmissoula.org or call our office.
