Nevada County Arts: First Friday Art Walks, Garrison Keillor and more

FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK
The First Friday Art Walk celebrates Nevada City’s diverse mix of galleries, artisan boutiques, retail shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, as well as its artistic and creative community.

Participating downtown businesses are open 5-9 p.m. and many of them host receptions with local artists, trunk shows or performances. Many shops also offer snacks and beverages, as well as sales on merchandise. The Art Walks also feature live music and theatrical performances at various downtown locations. May 5, June 2, July 7 and Aug. 4. Find them on Facebook.
