Do you have a business that would like to support our efforts?

A key component of redeveloping urban communities of any size is drawing people to the heart of the city, which, in this case, is downtown Visalia. By giving the community-at-large a reason to spend even just one Friday evening a month Downtown, First Friday events effectively promote economic opportunity by bringing tens of thousands of dollars in revenue to downtown businesses over the course of the year.

If your business would like to participate in the First Friday experience, please contact us regarding exhibition opportunities. Contact the Arts Consortium: [email protected] or call 559.802.3266.
