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 City of Binghamton, Visit Binghamton, and Wegmans.


Some galleries have different open times – check below for more details. Please check this page for changes or interruptions in planning. BCAC encourages you to follow CDC guidelines for safe social gatherings. More information can be found on the CDC’s website here.

Please note: entry to State Street is now closed near Burger Mondays, but remains open to local traffic via Lewis St. Nearby parking includes (limited) street parking on State St., Washington St., State St. parking garage, or Metrocenter Parking. Free parking near Phelps Mansion!


The Trolley leaves from Phelps Mansion Museum at 6PM and 7PM, touring downtown Binghamton and up to the Bundy Museum of History and Art, and returning to the Phelps. Parking is available at the Phelps Mansion Museum.

The Trolley Tour is FREE and highlights local architecture and Binghamton sights! Stops along the way include Lost Dog Café, Roberson Museum and Science Center, and Bundy Museum. The Trolley is operated by Broome County Transit and sponsored by the City of Binghamton / Binghamton Local Development Corporation (BLDC). Additional support is provided by volunteers of the Preservation Association of the Southern Tier (PAST).

Fantasy Photography by Alexis Michelle Tauterouff
On view: 03/03/2023 – 04/04/2023

Alexis Tauterouff is a published photographer of digital and film mediums, utilizing both forms to create fantastical images with an essence of something otherworldly. Taking inspiration from the works of writers such as C.S Lewis and J.R.R Tolkein and combining it with the spiritual pagan roots of her ancestry, she aims to evoke a sensation of nostalgia for another place and time. She has worked her way through many mediums to ultimately settle upon photography as her preferred form of expression, paying homage to the artists and authors that afforded her comfort during an oftentimes tumultuous youth.
