F1rst Friday


F1rst Friday is an Arts Consortium free program that takes place every first Friday of the month; all year-round! On the day of F1rst Friday, Arts Consortium’s F1rst Friday Venue Participants open their doors from 5:00pm – 8:00pm in beautiful Downtown Visalia; all a walking distance from each other.

These venues host artwork from local artists, regional artists, authors, or interactive activities. It is always a unique experience. Pick up a map at the participating venues, the night of F1rst Friday, to help you find the locations and for the opportunity to be entered into the opportunity drawing

Bring out the whole family and explore the arts in your community! 



To participate, make sure to have your map signed at three of the participating art stop venues. Write your name and phone number on the map and turn it in at your last venue stop for the evening. We will have the drawing the following week — and you could be the winner!
