Third Friday Durham is a recurring event during which the Durham art venues host free receptions. 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.
You can pick up a 3rd Friday Durham map at the visitor’s center, 212 West Main Street.
