First Friday Art Walk in Ypsilanti is a self-guided tour of art and music that is hosted by businesses throughout downtown Ypsilanti, Depot Town and even Campus Town.
From 6 Pm to 9 PM each month on the first Friday, from April to November, you can see free art activities involving local artists and musicians. Most of the participating business off some kind of refreshments, so it is a very social kind of event. The goal of the First Fridays Ypsilanti is to invite community members into the downtown area to support local talent and businesses while having a fun time.
A map is provided of the participating venues on the website each month, so you can decided before you go which places you want to visit. There are local restaurants in a all of these areas, so many people enjoy dinner and then go walking. There are parking areas in each location which are indicated on the map. There have been artists from as far away as Chicago on hand to talk about their work that is on display. A great family event!
From the Author: This event has grown every year and has become a do not miss event. Ypsilanti is very walkable makes this a nice way for people to meet business owners, artists and musicians in a very personal way.
