Begin your First Friday itinerary planning online at the Downtown Spokane Partnership’s (DSP) website, downtownspokane.org/first-Friday. Each month is different, depending on participating venues and the new or continuing art exhibits they’re hosting. Select events and venues according to featured routes that are organized by theme, including gallery, kid-friendly, stage, and tasting room, among others.

Select events by clicking “add to my list,” and when finished choosing your preferences, click “my picks” to view your complete list, along with its corresponding street map of marked locations. You can then “email picks” to yourself and use this easy-to-read agenda for your evening ride or urban hike.

On Sept. 7, start at Marmot Art Space to see Christy Branson’s melted wax artwork, along with works from other local and regional artists—plus enjoy complimentary Veraci Pizza. Then pedal or walk to Chase Gallery, at City Hall, for weaving demonstrations and poetry readings, followed by a stop at Liberty Ciderworks to see Chris Bovey’s limited-edition handmade graphic art prints and taste award-winning hard ciders. //
