A bit about First Fridays In Anchorage

Although primarily held in downtown Anchorage, First Friday events are held city wide. In downtown, it is an all day affair.

First Friday Mornings // Start the day with a stroll through the Anchorage Museum. Uncover the past of this great state and city with a tour through the historical galleries. Then view works by modern masters from Alaska and around the globe. Kids (and adults) will enjoy the hands-on exhibits at the Imaginarium. Create your own work of art or learn about the science and physics of the world we live in. On the way out the door, stop in the museum gift shop for a vast selection of art to purchase and take home!

Afternoons // Afternoon
Check out the more than 400 pieces of public art in Anchorage. From the 52 Faces at the corner of Mt. View Drive and Commercial Boulevard to Transition in front of the Sullivan Sports Arena. Art is everywhere. In summer, the Alaska Native peoples make and sell their works at the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Take home an intricately beaded purse or basket as a reminder of your Alaska vacation.

Evenings // Evening
The First Friday Art Walk is popular with locals and visitors. Meet local artists while nibbling on hors doeuvres. Grab a copy of the Anchorage Press publication for a map of participating galleries. Painters, photographers, fiber artists, and others display their work and discuss technique. There is bound to be something that appeals to everyones tastes. Wrap up the day with a local brew or cocktail and dessert to savor all the sights you've seen.
