Recruitment for the 2016 First Friday season has begun and we would love for your business to participate. The First Friday ArtWalk is open to businesses located in the Uptown District (located between 10th to the Town Common, and between Cotanche/Reade Circle and Dickinson/Pitt Street).
Participants on the First Friday ArtWalk are asked to be open during First Fridays from 5-8 pm. Uptown Greenville hires the Greenville Jolly Trolley on ArtWalk evenings to circulate between the participating venues. The ArtWalk map is published and distributed throughout the community to call attention to both the ArtWalk and to our uniquely diverse business culture. The map is also available online and for digital distribution through social media outlets and e-newsletters.
