First Fridays


The First Friday of every month from 6-9 p.m. join us for a fun night and discover Ventura’s art scene!

First Friday’s goal is to promote the appreciation and sales of art in a relaxed, supportive and fun environment. Each month, visual fine art spaces in downtown and midtown Ventura offer a variety of special entertainment to compliment the collectible artworks on display. Demonstrations, lectures, music, and performance provide an opportunity for everyone to share in this unique Ventura cultural experience.
