About First Friday

Every First Friday of the year, the community gathers for this arts-based, open house tour of beautiful downtown Kokomo.

Each month features a theme with downtown venues catering their activities to the month’s theme. This year, we’re bringing you fresh new themes to help support downtown businesses and draw people to the heart of Kokomo.

During each monthly event, visitors to the downtown area will find discounts and activities at shops and restaurants, as well as live music, public art, family-friendly activities and more.

If you are a vendor that would like to participate in First Friday but do not have a downtown location, we ask that you coordinate with a downtown business to host your activity. Each month, we’ll include a list of businesses that have announced their plans to participate, along with that business’s contact information. Those wishing to set up downtown may use this list to coordinate a place to set up during the event. To announce your plans for First Friday, please fill out this form.
