  • Help design the events

  • Be involved with publicity – work with the media and/or online tools

  • Coordinate with the Downtown Los Altos merchants and business owners
  • Play music at a First Friday

How can you get involved?

Join the Fun First Friday Committee.

Just show up at our bi-monthly meetings at Nature Gallery-1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month at 5:45 pm. We welcome all volunteers with enthusiasm and fresh ideas for making downtown Los Altos more vibrant in the evenings. You don’t have to be available on every first Friday of the year to join the First Friday fun!

Encourage More Merchants to be Open During First Friday

Visit your favorite stores that are not open, and encourage them to join us.  The more merchants that are open (or at least leave their lights on) the more successful Los Altos First Friday will become.

Enjoy First Friday live Entertainment * Refreshments * Evening Shopping

For the past 7 years, Los Altos First Friday has become a regular happening in our beautiful downtown. Would you like it if businesses were open every Friday till 8 pm?  By the end of 2015, we hope to have a core group of merchants who will stay open every Friday till 8 pm.

How will this happen?  

If downtown Los Altos transforms into a place where people shop at night, then businesses will stay open. Please be a part of this change by shopping during First Friday.

Music – Are you in a musical group who would like to perform during First Friday?

Please contact First Friday Music Coordinator Dr. Jamie Luca
