First Thursday

For our community’s safety and health, Experience Fayetteville has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 First Thursday season.
We look forward to 2021 and can’t wait to see you on the square.

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 2021 season on May 6. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public.
