On the first Friday of every month, the heart of downtown becomes St. Pete’s biggest block party. First Friday St. Pete is a showcase for the great bands, great drinks, and great food that make us Florida’s most exciting city.

Block Out - First Friday Every Month

First Friday St. Pete gets rolling on Central Avenue between 2nd and 3rd Street on – you guessed it! – the first Friday of every month. The party starts at 5:30pm and goes until 10. Your admission is free, the music is live, and vendors and restaurants offer a wide variety of food and drink.

First Friday St. Pete is also a chance to do good
