RETURN IN FULL SWING

MARCH

2023

A fresh season of town-wide Last Fridays art & fun, including Makers Markets, poetry, Living Arts Dancewaves, and more will rejoin the Art Walk (along with warmer weather) in March 2023.

 

In the meantime, the Art Walk continues January 27 & February 24, 2023, with select venues offering new monthly openings, music, and continued opportunities to stay connected with community on the last Friday of each month, 6-9 PM.
 

Find details on the offerings of each venue participating in Winter Art Walks by clicking the links to their websites and socials below!

Last Fridays are FREE community events, hosted by the Hillsborough Arts Council. Free community events require support from our community in order to sustain. Click below to help ensure another year of Last Fridays for Hillsborough, NC!

Keep Art Connecting Community!
