First Fridays are a local favorite with galleries and shops remaining open from 7-9 pm the first Friday of each month.

This FREE event is fast becoming a Kansas City favorite. "First Fridays" occur on the first Friday of every month year round, rain or shine. Art galleries, retailers and other participating art venues located in the Crossroads Art District showcase art from 7-9pm. With ample parking and an abundance of indoor and outdoor entertainment, there's no better way to spend a night than enjoying drinks or dining at an area restaurant, followed by a stroll through the galleries and shops of KC's heart of cultural activity.

In keeping with the eclecticism of the neighborhood, the Crossroads District is home to a variety of restaurants, bars and eateries including; fine dining, Italian, Mexican, Barbecue, Thai, Cajun, Seafood, Steaks, Burgers and more!
