Allentown’s First Friday Gallery Walk is one of the most popular monthly events in the City of Buffalo. Growing from just a handful of galleries to dozens of venues in and adjacent to Allentown on the first Friday of each month from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM,
Allentown art galleries, performance artists, musicians, restaurants, retailers, and others come together to create a rich cultural attraction. Select galleries Downtown and in the Elmwood Village also participate in Allentown First Fridays.
First Fridays is sponsored by The Allentown Association and highlights art galleries and small businesses in and around the Allentown Historic Preservation District. Participating galleries and businesses along the length of Allen Street as well as on Delaware, Elmwood, Franklin and Main Street will have extended hours from 6:00-9:00pm the first Friday of each month.
“We are extremely grateful for the support from Council Member Nowakowski and the City of Buffalo for this great event in Allentown, Buffalo’s Community of the Arts,” said David Cory, President of the Allentown Association.
Friday, August 6 will feature a block party, with Allen Street closed to traffic from Virginia Place, east of Delaware Avenue to Franklin Street.
