First Friday South is located
on 3rd Street in the Downtown Arts District 1406 South 3rd Street - Near the 'Welcome to Downtown Las Vegas' Sign.
"I have been working
diligently since the closure announcement with the City of Las Vegas, National Barricade Company and neighboring First
Friday South businesses to ensure that First Friday will go on. First Friday is
so important for our city and for our artists. I will continue to do everything
in my power to make sure it survives, including offering up my own time and
money to barricade the street." - Derek Stonebarger
