Spring weather is not cooperating with First Friday in downtown Greensboro on Friday, May 6.
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t ample reason to come downtown Friday evening as long as you have an umbrella handy.
The First Friday Night Live concert featuring Hobex with Greg Humphreys has been moved indoors to One Thirteen Brewhouse at 113 N. Greene St. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and all ages are welcome. The concert will last from 7 to 9 p.m. and dining options will be provided by Jamaican Coast Catering and Second Helpings.
The concert kicks off Mental Health Awareness month and Downtown Greensboro Inc. (DGI) that sponsors First Fridays is recognizing Sanctuary House, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of adults living with mental illness.
Jodi Lorenzo, executive director of Sanctuary House, said, “May is Mental Health Month and Sanctuary House is proud to celebrate 20 years of serving our community. We are appreciative that DGI has partnered with us to showcase the importance of mental health, which in the era of COVID, has taken center stage.”
The concert was originally scheduled to be held in front of the Greensboro History Museum and the Greensboro History Museum had extended its hours for the event. However, since the concert has moved indoors the Greensboro History Museum will close on its regular schedule at 5 p.m.
From 5 to 9 p.m., the second day of the Dance Project’s 5th annual Dance Marathon will be held in the Van Dyke Performance Space. The event is designed to support the Dance Project’s School whose goal is to make high-quality dance accessible to as many people as possible.
First Friday is back at the Greensboro Cultural Center at 200 N. Davie Street. From 6 to 9 p.m. there will be live performances, open galleries and creative activities that include the chance to win prizes.
