First Friday Puyallup

Visit Downtown Puyallup the First Friday of each month for a growing cultural event that brings the community together to experience Puyallup’s revitalized downtown district.  Visit your longtime favorite businesses and check out all the new businesses, restaurants and pubs in the neighborhood. Spend an evening with friends, “seeing and being seen”, at this fun, informal monthly “art walk” event.

The mission of the First Friday Puyallup sponsor is to encourage a lively community culture of art and entertainment throughout the downtown corridor.

First Friday Puyallup is a fairly new, grass-roots tradition with more businesses joining each month. We hope to have a website and map of participating businesses available soon, in […]
