Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

First Friday, Old City

First Friday, Old City

Every first Friday of the month, people head to Old City to view the edgy, imaginative and beautiful works at neighborhood art galleries that keep their doors open later to welcome the crowds. Festivities spill out onto the sidewalks, where musicians and performance artists entertain, and, after getting their culture fill, patrons file into their favorite restaurants and bars.
