First Friday (Oct. 7)

Tonight is First Friday downtown, but it’s not just the usual monthly Art Walk, it’s also the Fall Art Hop—many other businesses than just the galleries will be open late, featuring artists’ works and very often free wine, snacks, and live music.

As usual the Downtown Bend site has a comprehensive list of participants, with the Art Hop lasting from 5 until 9pm. Over at Deschutes Brewery, they are featuring their last First Friday event of the season in conjunction with the downtown festivities, from 5 until 10pm—with art, music, BBQ and beer in the lot behind the pub.

And the First Friday fun extends to the Old Mill District too with many of the galleries down there participating.
