What is First Friday Las Vegas?

First Friday is a celebration of art the way art should be appreciated. It’s a community event where all are welcome and encouraged to appreciate the artists of Las Vegas and the creative energy this city has to offer. You’ll find art, live music, food, shopping, and good times.There is no better example of culture and community in Las Vegas than First Friday – from 5pm until 11pm (Winter Hours January – March) the first Friday of each and every month!

Where is First Friday Las Vegas?

First Friday is celebrated all over Downtown Las Vegas, but officially FF juried art fairs are primarily located in two areas at this time. Casino Center and Colorado St, in the middle of the Arts District

Las Vegas Food Not Bombers Sarita, Charles and Brian had a great time tabling for FNBLV at this month’s First Friday in the downtown Arts District on July 2 from 7-11:30pm. We set up an outreach table with banana bread, pastries, fresh fruit, lemonade and iced coffee; we also had handbills to get the word out about our weekly picnics, literature, Food Not Bombs bumperstickers and buttons. Charles did the baking and FNBer Kelly contributed literature and merch.

We got a great response from folks passing by the booth, whether just because they were looking for a bite to eat, or because they knew Food Not Bombs and wanted to know how to get involved here in Vegas. We had a lot of great conversations with friends old and new.

See you at the park this weekend — and at the next First Friday in August!

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas participated in Aprils First Friday event in Downtown’s Arts District on April 2 from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. We had banana bread, brownies and fruit. Charles brought fruit, Gail supplied banana bread and Michelle brought banana bread and brownies. Michelle and Brian worked the booth. Though, off to a rough start, having to relocate multiple times, we seemed to have had a great response from people at the booth, many of whom were familiar with FnB, but unaware of a local chapter. Others were interested in the effort, and curious about participation. Overall we felt the booth was a successful form of networking, and hope that FnB will be able to participate in future First Friday events.
