First Thursday *Suspended

For our community’s safety and health, Experience Fayetteville has decided to suspend First Thursday programming until further notice.
We will continue to monitor the situation. For updates visit this page or follow Experience Fayetteville on social media. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you.

On the first Thursday of the month, the city’s historic downtown square transforms into an outdoor arts district featuring visual artists who create items in a variety of mediums. The event also includes live music, street performances, children’s activities, food trucks, a craft beer garden and more. First Thursday runs from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

First Thursday Fayetteville returns to the downtown square for the 2020 season on May 7. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public.
