First Friday Themes

Every month, Downtown Lakeland shuts down the streets for our First Friday events. We cancelled the event from April 2020-October 2020, as well as January 2021-March 2021 due to the pandemic. We plan to resume the event again 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 themes for 2021:

  • April 2, 2021 – SUN ‘n FUN Flight Night, sponsored by the Aerospace Center for Excellence
  • May 7, 2021 – Theme TBD
  • June 4, 2021 – Family Fun Night
