ABOUT

The First Friday Art Walks are the signature event of Denver's Art District on Santa Fe.

The District comes alive as thousands descend upon the Santa Fe Drive, year-round, rain or shine, for the First Friday Art Walks from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

View art from hundreds of artists in galleries, studios, co-ops, upstairs, downstairs, in alleys, on the street—everywhere! Check out all the details below.
