On the evening of the first Friday of each month a massive art fair takes over the Arts District. The event stretches down Charleston Boulevard from Las Vegas Boulevard to Main Street and all of the smaller streets surrounding the area. This is a great opportunity to meet and support local artists and experience a different type of Las Vegas nightlife. The Arts District also has numerous galleries and shops open all month and murals and unique sculptures can be found throughout the district.
If you go:
The streets are shut down to traffic during the event. Get there early to get a good parking space as it fills up quickly. Most of the side streets allow street parking, just be mindful of tow-zones. There are no entrance fees. The event usually lasts form 6p.m. to 11p.m.
