On the first Thursday of each month from April to October, First Thursday Fayetteville transforms the city’s historic Downtown Square into a vibrant arts district, featuring the work of more than 40 visual artists, live music, street performers, food and drink, and children’s activities.
It’s a safe, family-friendly, community event for people of all ages. It’s free to the public, and frankly, a lot of fun. First Thursday feels like a giant gallery opening, with all the energy and excitement of a street festival. Come see for yourself!
If you are already an approved participating Artist in the Outdoor Art Walk, please pay here. Payment is due by the 25th of each month prior.
This year’s First Thursday shirt is so cool that we decided to sell them. Get yours today, quantities are limited.
