Philadelphia has a monthly art event where galleries are open on the First Friday from 5pm to 9pm. This happens rain or shine. A large number of galleries can be found between Front and Third, and Market and Vine Streets. Started in 1991 by a group of galleries as a collaborative open house evening, First Fridays grew quickly into one of Philly's most vital, signature cultural events. Old City's historic commercial buildings have fostered a SoHo-like cultural ambience with the densest network of galleries in the city.
