Join us every First Friday from 6 to 9PM

First Friday is celebrated from September to May and not in the summer months.

First Friday celebrations include food, a cash bar, exhibitions, songs, and readings. Join us for themed entertainment and special events that occur throughout the semester for this fun monthly event.

On First Friday visitors entering the Great Hall at the Irish Cultural Center are quickly drawn to the fascinating display on the opposite wall. Every month there are pictures, quilts, paintings and other superb pieces of art that represent the work of local artisans. Recent displays have shown beautiful photographic scenes of Ireland, creative fabric arts that entice the curious mind, and paintings in many mediums that make you think you are dreaming of the Emerald Isle.

During open hours the exhibition in the Great Hall can be viewed when taking a paid tour or by using a culture pass, and only then.

If you would like to be a featured artist for First Friday and the corresponding month, contact Elaine Monaghan Price by email: elaine.monaghan-price@azirish.org.
