First Friday

Every month, Downtown Lakeland shuts down the streets for our First Friday events. We cancelled the event from April 2020-October 2020 and January-March 2021 due to the pandemic. We plan to resume the event in April 2021. Thousands of visitors every month enjoy a Classy Car Show, a Makers Market with crafters and artisans, and over 60 First Friday Exhibitors with goodies, giveaways, and special deals. However, our themes change from month to month, and sometimes we have special sponsors or special activities in Munn Park.

See below for the tentative upcoming themes:

  • July 2, 2021- Bike Night, sponsored by Harley Davidson
