First Friday of the Month
A monthly celebration of cultural diversity, history, food, business, and arts!
First Friday is a night that encourages collaboration between retail shops, restaurants, art venues, and local entertainment from 5-8pm bringing residents, visitors, and students together to showcase the vibrancy of our downtown businesses and create a welcoming community.
This is an opportunity to enrich our relationship with our neighbors, nearby residents in the tri-lakes, visitors, our school community and to better engage college students at North Country Community College and Paul Smith’s College.
Our businesses can help be spaces of welcoming and belonging that foster interaction between members of our community who otherwise don’t interact as often. In creating a more welcoming business community, we create opportunities for both more clients and employees by fostering the kind of town that people want to live and spend time in.
