June 2 First Fridays Artswalk

June 02, 2023

The First Fridays Artswalk in downtown Pittsfield returns on Friday, June 2 from 5 to 8 pm to celebrate Pride. Thanks to grant support from the Pittsfield Cultural Council, the Mass Cultural Council, and The Feigenbaum Foundation, First Fridays Artswalk will expand in 2023 with new programming including an Art Market on Dunham Mall, live music in Persip Park, and live art demonstrations. The popular Free Kids’ Paint & Sip will return to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in June and will move outdoors later in the season. Click here to view our digital guided tour of all events!
