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, and Visit Binghamton.
