First Friday is a monthly cultural event that partners the efforts of visual artists and performers with the infrastructure of supporting venues (e.g museums, galleries, theatres, dining establishments, merchants and public spaces) in Downtown Sarnia.

The promotion of a monthly arts and culture tour develops a mutually beneficial network of creative, commercial, and community energy. Greater success of the downtown arts and culture district and Sarnia’s community core depends on the unified efforts of its constituent parts. It is not enough just to co-exist, we must seek out a common vision of community expression, celebration and participation.
