Inspired by the original First Fridays event at the Guggenheim museum in New York City, Tucson Young Professionals has been hosting a Tucson version of First Fridays since 2007. First Fridays events are a place for Tucson’s young professional crowd to gather together and simultaneously enjoy local art, music and food. Each event provides an opportunity for its patrons to leave their casual-wear at home, don more formal apparel, and delight in various local talents. First Fridays events are designed to showcase the Tucson community and to offer those that fall between college age and retirement age a connection with the best of Tucson’s cultural scene. In combination with it’s regularly changing menu of art music and food, First Fridays annually presents a New Years Eve party, a spring fashion show and a summer celebration of Tucson’s birthday with a salsa and margarita competition.
