Experience Columbia, After hours

We're partnering with several of Columbia's finest retailers, restaurants and musicians to create a monthly after-hours experience that's destined to be a tradition!

Every first Friday stores are staying open late so you can stroll the streets with your friends and family and experience Columbia's blooming night-life.

First Fridays happens Every First Friday of the month all year. Rain or Shine.


Interested in Participating?


If you are a local retail store with a location in the downtown area, all we ask is you stay open until 8pm the first Friday of each month. Let us know and we'll send you a free poster to advertise.


If you are a local musician with a non-amplified instrument (or set of instruments) you're welcome to set up on street corners or coordinate with a local retailer to set up at their storefront and play to your hearts content!


If you are a food truck and would love to attend, please contact us so we can help you set up properly!

Other Vendors

If you're an artist, reseller or vendor of any kind we suggest you work with local retail stores to setup some sort of partnership agreement to be in their store or at their storefront. We aren't setup to permit vendors on the streets at the time.
