The Exchange District BIZ held an inaugural gathering in July of local artists to bring them together for the first ever First Fridays event, and coming off of the early success, organizers are holding another one on September 3.

First Fridays take place the first Friday of every month, and is a coordinated effort between galleries, performing arts venues, retailers, artists, and restaurants to celebrate and promote the arts and cultural side of the heritage district.

Participating retailers will display a logo in front of their businesses.

The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. More details are available at FirstFridaysWinnipeg.org.
