Promote Your “This Month Only” Event at a Temporary Location
• This Month Only events must be open at least 3 hours on the First Friday of the month.
• This Month Only participation is $25 per event listing.

First Friday occasionally lands on or near a national or religious holiday. Some participating venues may decide not to open on these dates. In order to avoid future confusion, First Friday Citywide Gallery Night doesn’t shift to another day or week (i.e.. First Thursday or Second Friday).
