Fayetteville’s First Friday

May 3 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Celebrate Downtown Fayetteville at First Fridays!

Fayetteville’s First Fridays are back presented by the Fayetteville Merchants, First Fridays will be held on the first Friday of each month from May through November.

These festive evenings will transform downtown Fayetteville into a vibrant gathering place for our local community and visitors alike. Businesses will stay open late, offering extended shopping hours so you can explore all the unique shops, boutiques, and galleries our town has to offer.

But that’s not all! Court Street will be closed to traffic to host an artisan market, featuring talented local and regional vendors selling handmade goods, arts, and crafts. You’ll also find food trucks, live music, and other entertainment to keep you entertained as you stroll through downtown.

Whether you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, looking to indulge in delicious local fare, or simply want to soak up the lively atmosphere, First Fridays in Fayetteville have something for everyone. This is the perfect opportunity to shop small, support local businesses, and celebrate the spirit of this charming West Virginia town.
