"Every Friday is First Friday somewhere!"     --Linda Hollett-Bazouzi



What is 'First Friday'? This is a regular time galleries showcase their new artists and exhibitions. Often there are street vendors, food trucks, and musicians, inside as well as outside! Richmond LOVES ART!

Parking in the Arts District:


Like most of Richmond, parking in the Arts District can get difficult. For First Fridays, there will be free street parking available, though on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you can’t find a spot, or the closest one is miles away, CityParking offers the perfect parking solutions.

Our lots on Adams & Grace (Lot 3), Grace & Jefferson (Lot 20) and W. Franklin & Jefferson (Lot 201) are located in Monroe Ward, right by all the action.

Lot 3: 18 W. Grace St.

Lot 20: 115 N. Jefferson St.

Lot 201: 201 W. Grace St.
