ASHLAND, Ky. — First Friday and Downtown Live begins the 2016 season on April 1. First Friday is a monthly event celebrates Ashland’s historic Arts District, downtown galleries, musicians, restaurants and retailers. It coincides with Downtown Live, Ashland in Motion’s classic car show, and community members really come out in droves to show off their rad rides!
On the first Friday of every month, the community gathers downtown to be treated to live music, special events and vendors, activities for kids, in addition to all of the local retailers and restaurants who join in on the First Friday fun, too!
First Friday and Downtown Live occur on the first Friday of every month, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. First Friday and Downtown Live season is April through October (with the exception of July).
Are you the proud owner of a classic car? Downtown Live is the perfect venue to show off your vintage vehicle and connect with area car enthusiasts! Participating is easy: simply bring your car downtown between 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. on the First Friday of every month and park in the designated Downtown Live area. Downtown Live volunteers will be on deck to help out, answer questions, and collect registration fees.
