Fridays In Phoenix

Downtown Phoenix hosts one of the nation’s largest, self guided artwalks.  Roosevelt Row serves as a central hub for the monthly artwalk every First Friday from 6 to 11pm.

Tour galleries, venues and art-related spaces to see a variety of artwork and to enjoy the spirit and culture of the city as you mingle with thousands of other residents and visitors.  Free event shuttles are available through out downtown and are headquartered at the Phoenix Art Museum.

First Fridays in Roosevelt has recently been highlighted by USA Today as “The Top 10 Arts Districts in the US.” Experience the amazing art the Roosevelt Row Arts District has to offer! (Read other USA Today coverage here.)
