About First Fridays

What is First Fridays Ypsilanti?

First Fridays Ypsilanti is a self-guided monthly art and culture walk hosted throughout the downtown areas of Ypsilanti at multiple venues. Each month on the first Friday participating venues offer free art activities involving local artists, musicians, and/or tastings. The goal of the First Fridays Ypsilanti is to invite community members into the downtown area to support local talent and businesses while having a fun time!
