First Friday

A Downtown Manteo Tradition

First Friday

First Friday is a fun-filled, family-oriented event held the first Friday of each month, April through November from 6pm to 8pm, in historic downtown Manteo. The sidewalks pulse with live music, magic, artisans, food, drinks and much more.  

 

The Manteo Stroll featuring celebrations, specials, music all over town, art, and more inside other Manteo galleries, shops and restaurants also happens during First Friday. Check out the map below to see who is participating in this month's Manteo Stroll.

Make a day of it on Roanoke Island by visiting our attractions, shops, and art galleries. Then, join us downtown for our First Friday celebration and finish the day with a delicious food and drink experience. 

 

First Friday celebrations are a great time to explore downtown Manteo. Join us!

First Friday is sponsored by the Town of Manteo, Manteo Rotary Club and Manteo Furniture & Appliance.
