First Fridays Come In!

First Fridays is a night of art, fun, music, dance, and community at local businesses and venues in downtown Aurora on the first Friday evening of the month. First Fridays in Downtown Aurora invites the community to enjoy art, music, food, theater, and more on the first Friday of the month.

First Fridays runs from February through December (NO July). First Friday venues have staggered times typically ranging from 5 p.m. to midnight.

There are no First Fridays in January or July.
