Being organized for almost 2O years now, the galleries in the Old City keep their doors open to visitors and art-lovers on the First Friday of each month. Held between the hours of 5pm and 9pm various galleries can be visited and with a diverse crowd the experience is just unique.

If you get hungry and haven’t brought with you a lunch bag you can eat at one of the Old Cities many restaurants, you can watch people mingling and feel the ‘art’ in the air. I advise you to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, because you might spend a few hours roaming the streets. :)

Address:
230 Vine Street and Locations throughout Old City
Philadelphia, PA 19106 

Price:
Free

Opening Hours:
5:00pm-9:00pm.
