Now that the holidays are over, decorations are put away, and the New Year is in full swing, you may be wondering what you can do to keep the cheer going. 

Look no further than Downtown Springfield’s First Friday Art Walk! On the first Friday of every month, visit the Downtown Arts District to enjoy original art, live music, hands-on activities and live art demonstrations in more than 20 participating galleries, as well as fine and casual dining, cutting-edge fashion, one-of-a-kind retail and vibrant nightlife.

Speaking of nightlife, while you’re out roaming the downtown streets, make your way west of Park Central Square to stop by Harbell’s for a delicious bite, a refreshing drink, or both! If you’d like to take advantage of our Happy Hour, visit us before exploring the galleries for $3.25 well drinks, crafts on tap and wines, plus $5.50 Long Islands and margaritas from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Our Friday-only specials also include $5 Purple Drank and $4 Grapefruit Fizz.

The First Friday Art Walk runs from 6 to 10 p.m., and admission is completely free! Visit springfieldmo.org for more information.
