First Friday Art Walks



Join us for the First Friday Art Walk series in downtown Kent! All participating galleries and businesses stay open until 8pm on the first Friday of each month, from May-October. Enjoy refreshments, view artist demonstrations and special exhibits, and participate in community art activities throughout the downtown district. Visit at least 4 Art Walk locations and enter to win a raffle prize from a different location each month. (No purchase necessary.) Bring the kids or make a date night of it! Grab dinner at a local restaurant and explore the arts at your leisure. Stop at the art-wrapped utility boxes and listen to poetry written by local children. Keep your eyes peeled for public art surprises around town. Enjoy the beautiful setting of downtown Kent!
