Please note that the October First Friday was rescheduled due to inclement weather, the NEW DATE is Friday, November 7 and will feature the FLY BETTY BAND! Join us on the Square from 8pm-10pm for a FREE FUN CONCERT!
Thank goodness it's First Friday! First Friday on Gainesville’s Historic Downtown Square is a fun-filled way to kick-off your weekend.
No one wants to cook on Friday! Dine in one of our 10 Downtown Restaurants! Each restaurant provides a relaxed atmosphere. Sit outside and listen to music, see artists and enjoy Gainesville’s finest delicacies! On First Friday only, patrons can walk around with their beverage in the designated downtown area. Just ask for a wristband from the participating downtown restaurants.
