The official May First Friday events are canceled, and the in-person Family Block Party and Pride Parade events are postponed, date TBD. Individual participation from the art galleries, retail, and restaurants will be at the business owner’s discretion. 

Virtual First Friday: Family Block Party & Pride Parade
May 1, 2020, 6-8 pm (with Yard Art Walk, 4-6 pm)

If we can’t all be together in downtown Carbondale, then let’s connect virtually for a fun-filled evening with local businesses and creatives!

Every year the Carbondale May First Friday is an event to remember and this year, a collective of bright minds and colorful personalities have joined forces to make sure this year is just as special while we continue to celebrate in an alternative format. 

To enjoy the outdoor element of our traditional Family Block Party we’re encouraging people to participate in a Yard Art Walk from 4-6 pm (don’t forget to wear your face mask and practice social distancing). Carbondale Arts will be providing FREE chalk kits and yard signs to decorate so everyone can create something to share with friends and neighbors. Chalk kits and yard signs are available to pick up in front of The Launchpad. We have a limited quantity, please limit one per artist or household. Enjoy! While adhering to distancing guidelines, take a stroll, and enjoy this community project – we encourage picture taking and sharing!

Afterward, settle in and hop on Thunder River Theatre’s ThunderStream for the First Friday broadcast with special guests and a celebration of Pride from 6-8 pm. Schedule below.
