First Friday Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, announces that the First Friday event for Dec. 4 is canceled.

This decision was made due to the COVID-19 health threat and the current State of Nevada Pause in effect.

The First Friday Foundation continues to work on ways for our communities to gather virtually for the next few months. All of the First Friday stakeholders have been crucial in creating and sustaining this longest running cultural event in Las Vegas history and keeping the downtown Las Vegas economy and small businesses alive.

Many artists, local food trucks and surrounding businesses in the area depend on the health of First Friday in order to sustain their livelihoods.
