First Thursday

Experience Fayetteville will kick off the annual First Thursday Fayetteville series of events on May 7 and continue through October 1. 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.
