First Friday Art Walk takes place on the First
Friday of each month, ALL Year Long
5:00 - 8:00pm
Old Town is alive with crowds of visitors on the first Friday of each month from 5-8pm. Don't miss this opportunity to view and experience art by local artists as well as regional and national artists. The walk includes over twenty businesses, restaurants and galleries, some with art on display, some with the artist on hand and some providing a live demonstration. Refreshments are always available. You may also find live music along the way. All local residents and visitors are welcome. There is no charge to attend monthly Art Walks. Art Walk guides are available right here on this web site the Thursday before the walk.
First Friday Art Walk is proudly sponsored by Old Town Pocatello, Inc. and the participating merchants and businesses in the Old Town area. We hope you enjoy our art community!

First Friday by Betty Richards
Every month it comes to town,
First Friday Art Walk can be found
Up and down Main Street for one and for all
To meander the shops where art is on call.
You'll find pictures painted in Acrylics and Oils,
Sculpture of people and animals and even an Owl.
Flowers and trees, homes and a boat,
Some one had rigged up a feisty old goat.
There is jewelry and hair bows,
Belts, hand bags, and clothes.
Baby dresses and big fluffy dish rags,
I found a flare skirt that didn't even sag.
How kind of Shop Keepers to open their doors,
And even serve treats to the Comers and Goers.
Some antique things were also found,
One as old as me and nearly as round
What fun to see Old Town, it's been here so long
So come on down and join the throng.
