First Friday Foundation of Las Vegas 


A little about us!

First Friday is an all-inclusive event for the local Las Vegas Community! We provide a platform where everyone can celebrate our local culture and creativity in all of its forms. While best known for our free monthly festival held on the First Friday of every month downtown within the 18b Arts District that provides a hub for countless creators and innovators throughout Las Vegas, the First Friday Foundation and brand reaches far beyond the one day per month. 

For many years, the Foundation, with help from our sponsors and community partners, has put significant effort into providing artistic opportunities for thousands of students in the Clark County School District through creative empowerment assemblies and contests along with income based opportunities. In addition, we have also provided opportunities for local artists to inspire students, seniors and more by brightening learning environments through long lasting gardens and murals.

Knowing the way in which art in all forms can bring joy into anyone’s day, First Friday always looks to bring more art into every environment and collaborate with other organizations supporting the community. We have worked alongside countless other non-profits such as The DISCOVERY Childrens Museum, Best Buddies, Nevada Homeless Alliance, Nevada Senior Services, and Outside Las Vegas to bring field trips, day outings, creative projects, and a general spirit of inspiration to as many people as possible. We have also been honored to support our Metropolitan Police Department in organizing toy drives and neighborhood cleanups in order to provide an aura of hopefulness for areas in need.
