First Friday Lafayette is a new program in collaboration with the Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF), the City of Lafayette, Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette, Greater Lafayette Commerce, Downtown businesses, and local artists, that launched in May 2021.   It was designed to replace the monthly Gallery Walk.  Each month Downtown Lafayette comes alive to draw on the power of the city’s arts and culture scene to support small businesses.

First Friday happens on the first Friday of each month, year round. The main event runs 6-9P, but it really starts and ends with the Downtown merchants.
