Our next First Friday event is August 7, 2020 from 6pm to 9pm in Downtown Lakeland. The theme is Inside Out! Enjoy Downtown restaurants and retailers as they spill out into the street for more socially distanced fun! There will be no guest vendors or exhibitors in the street (i.e. no Makers Market). Masks are strongly encouraged. Enjoy live music and a classy car show. First Friday is a family-friendly event held in the streets of Downtown Lakeland between Lemon Street and Oak Street along Kentucky and Tennessee Avenues. On-street parking begins to close in the event area at 3pm to allow us to clear the streets and set up the exhibitors and vendors. Parking in all permitted and metered locations is free after 5pm and all day on the weekends. Event parking is limited, so please carpool with friends and neighbors! We also offer free valet on the corner of Lemon St. and Tennessee Ave. on First Fridays.
