First Fridays

Mission Statement:


The mission of First Fridays is to enliven the Riverfront Cultural District, utilizing the creative, collaborative, and entrepreneurial spirits of the business owners of Downtown Haverhill. We will do this by collaborating with local businesses, artists, and performers to create a monthly event that encourages shopping, dining and the arts, and showcases the rejuvenation of Downtown Haverhill.

First Fridays takes place in Downtown Haverhill, MA, specifically within the Haverhill Riverfront Cultural District triangle of Washington Street, Essex Street, and Railroad Square.
First Friday is BACK this fall in the Riverfront Cultural District! Come experience great food and drink, art, music, and shopping right here in Downtown Haverhill!
