  • The next First Friday is on August 5, 2022.

    On the first Friday of every month, St. Augustine's renowned art galleries open their doors and welcome visitors to browse the latest art exhibits at more than 30 participating galleries.

    This cooperative open house showcases the amazing variety of artwork represented in St. Augustine’s fine art galleries. From contemporary to traditional and everything in between, pieces are created by local and national artists working in oils, pastels, photography, ceramics, wood, textiles and metal.

    Many of the featured artists are on hand to answer questions about their work. The monthly event takes place on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 9 p.m., rain or shine, throughout St. Augustine's historic downtown area, from Aviles to King streets, St. George Street and others — even over the Bridge of Lions onto Anastasia Island and the beach.

    This event is sponsored by The Art Galleries of St. Augustine, which is an artistic association of the diverse and eclectic art galleries located in the nation's oldest city. To see an interactive map of the event, go here
