First Fridays @ Five

First Fridays are themed evenings where everyone is invited into downtown North East for an event that is part art walk and part street fair. There's something for everyone at First Fridays! Farm to Table demonstrations, live entertainment, artisans, sidewalk sales, in-store events, vendors, crafters, dining specials and so much more!

5:00 - 8:00 p.m. the first Friday of the month from May to August.

2016 First Friday Themes

May 6 - Spring in to North East 

This month’s theme is SPRING! Local downtown businesses will have a storefront decoration contest! Come see the beautiful Spring decorations and enjoy live entertainment by Carl Hultman.  

June 3 - Car Cruise-In

Last year’s car cruise had a spectacular turnout and weather permitting we hope to have the same great night again this year. Park United Methodist Church has allowed us to use their parking lot for the cruise again this year. Cruise on down for our 2nd annual Car Cruise-In and enjoy entertainment by Mike and Marie Miller. 

July 1 - An Olde Fashioned 4th of July 

July’s First Fridays will once again be an Olde Fashioned Fourth of July—complete with a backyard style firework show from Phantom Fireworks in Heard Park. Last year’s response to this theme was overwhelmingly popular and we are very excited to start a new tradition! Enjoy patriotic music presented by Erie Heights Brass Ensemble. 

August 5 - Furr'st Friday Pet Night 

Pet night encourages the community and their furry friends to come downtown and enjoy the last month of summer! Come downtown, bring your furry friends and enjoy some live entertainment.
