The content below is for the July 2024 First Friday Art Walk. We will update for the August 2, 2024 event as details are confirmed.

On the first Friday of every month, more than 25 art galleries open their doors and welcome visitors to browse their latest exhibits. This cooperative open house showcases the variety of artwork in St. Augustine's art galleries. The exhibits include traditional art and contemporary pieces by local and national artists working in oils, pastels, photography, ceramics, wood, textiles, and metal. Many featured artists are on hand to answer questions about their work.

This monthly event occurs every first Friday, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., throughout St. Augustine's historic downtown area, particularly along King, St. George, and Aviles Streets. Galleries in the Uptown region and on Anastasia Island are also open for First Friday.

This event is sponsored by The St. Augustine Art Association, an artistic association of diverse and eclectic art galleries in the nation's oldest city.
