First Thursday

First Thursday on the square is a family friendly seasonal event produced by Experience Fayetteville on the first Thursday of the month. This community centered, family friendly event features a combination of music, food, art, and fun. There is always free parking in the Town Center Parking lot during First Thursdays and in case of inclement weather we will move inside to the Town Center.

In 2017, First Thursday will be held on:

May, 4

June 1

July 6

August 3

September 7

October 5

This year, we are inviting you to EXPERIENCE something new. We will be hosting First Thursday all season long, but with three large, themed festivals in June, August and October closing off Block, Mountain, East and Center Streets around the square. In the alternate months, we will host a more intimate First Thursday event featuring food, a beer garden, and music on the Town Center Plaza. Mountain Street will be closed between Block and East.

Stay tuned for more First Thursday news!
