First Fridays in Augusta, Georgia
Come to downtown Augusta on the first Friday of every month from 5-10 p.m. for an evening of gallery and studio tours, demonstrations and entertainment. What began as a gallery walk by Artist’s Row almost 10 years ago has turned into a free public “celebration” for much of downtown Augusta.

Arts in the Heart of Augusta
A great festival for vendors!
