At this time there will not be a live concert, street musicians or other community groups at First Friday. Please practice safe guidelines while out in public. Self-screen before leaving the house and stay home if you are sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms. Consider covering your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering to help protect those around you. Stay at least 6 feet away from others outside your party at all times, inside and outside. Follow the rules of the businesses and all directions from employees. Wash or sanitize your hands before interacting with items or employees and after paying.


The Downtown Bryan Association holds the permit for First Friday and as such, is the entity that determines who is allowed to participate. Arts and culture have always been a centerpiece of First Friday. Artists, musicians and non-profits are accepted with careful review.
