First Friday listings, Sept. 3, 2015

The First Friday arts festival is scheduled from 5 to 11 p.m. Sept. 4 at venues throughout the 18b Arts District in downtown Las Vegas, near the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Main Street. Live entertainment, artists’ booths, food vendors and more are planned. Admission is free. On-street and paid parking is available close to the event, but spaces fill up early. Visitors are cautioned to avoid parking in unauthorized parking areas, such as vacant lots, as they may be subject to towing.

The event is continuing its scaled back footprint with Summer Artwalk: 1st Friday in the Arts District. The closed streets will be limited to the area north of Charleston, which will be organized by the First Friday Foundation, while events south of that on Casino Center Boulevard will be organized by the galleries located there.

Although the main events are scheduled in the 18b Art District, organizers note that First Friday exists all over downtown Las Vegas, and the creative energy has expanded to the Fremont East area before and after each First Friday event with arts, crafts, bands, and food and drink specials at Fremont East locations at First Friday — Fremont.

For information on artists, music and more, visit firstfridaylasvegas.com.

Preview Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 3 offers a more low-key event before streets are closed and booths are set up. The preview presents an opportunity to see many of the galleries and shows before the crowds on Friday.
