Third Friday Durham is a recurring event during which the Durham art venues host free receptions. It takes place the 3rd Friday of the month.
The next Third Friday Durham is September 17th, 2021.
Third Friday Durham has expanded its footprint across the city from Hayti to 9th Street, from Lakewood to Broad.
This is a great time to check out the new and continuing exhibits. Musicians and other entertainers busk on the sidewalks (moving inside during inclement weather) and many artists open their studios to visitors. It’s also a good time to check out shops and to try out a new restaurant.
Most gallery receptions take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. but visit the 3rd Friday Durham Facebook page, where details will be posted.
You can also find a map and a list of events at thirdfridaydurham.org.
