First Friday Art Walk

Established in the early 2000’s by a creative trio of women dedicated to the arts in Binghamton, the First Friday Brochure highlighted arts spaces that opened their doors on the First Friday of every month from 6-9pm. Almost 20 years later, First Friday has expanded to include our vibrant restaurant scene, and additional creative sites. In 2020 the Broome County Arts Council adopted the First Friday art walk as their own. The Broome County Arts Council is proud to help preserve this iconic guide with the generous support of M&T Bank, the City of Binghamton, Visit Binghamton, and Wegmans.

* Expect interruptions from COVID-19. Please continue to check this page for last minute cancellations and changes.

BCAC wants to remind you to follow CDC guidelines: Stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms; wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds at a time; stay at least six feet away from other people (social distancing); wear a face covering when social distancing is not possible (indoors, crowded outdoor venues)
