Held the first Friday of every month, dozens flock to the many galleries and business around downtown Scranton to get in on the action.  From fine cuisine at some of the city’s best restaurants and cafes to fine art in the local galleries, there is something for everyone! All events associated with First Friday take place from 6-9PM. This provides the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy the weather while seeing what the city has to offer. And although all events are in walk-able distance a trolley bus is available to provide shuttle service to designated stops. So whether you are a foodie, an art lover, or an avid shopper First Friday is the place to be.
