First Friday


What is First Friday and why is it important to Downtown Yakima? 

First Friday is a monthly event that showcases local performers, artists, and small businesses! Downtown Yakima retailers, restaurants and organizations will feature local artist and performers and have promotions for their customers. One of our goals at Downtown Yakima is making downtown a thriving place to live, work, and play. First Friday is an opportunity to highlight the abundance of businesses, organizations, and other downtown spaces that expand culture, dining, and shopping in Yakima.
