First Fridays in Old City
Mar 01, 2017 02:17PM
Old City‘s galleries, studios, shops and restaurants will open their doors from 5 to 10 p.m., March 3, and the first Friday each month, to showcase the neighborhood’s vibrant arts scene. Old City Arts Association launched First Friday in 1991 to introduce the rest of Philadelphia to the improving neighborhood and the artists and designers that were bringing it back to life.
Two decades later, Old City is a nationally recognized arts destination, named in 2013 as one of the country’s top ArtPlaces by the ArtPlace Foundation.
Admission is free. Free parking for metered spaces only between Callowhill and Walnut streets and between Front and 5th streets after 5 p.m.
