First Fridays in Phoenixville
Update 4/16/2021: While there will always be First Fridays in Phoenixville, 2021 will look a bit different due to COVID-19. Be sure to take advantage of Open Air dining on Bridge Street and continue to support our local businesses.
Phoenixville First Fridays (#PXVFirstFriday) are held on the first Friday of each month, May 2020 through October 2020, from 6 pm-10 pm and are a great way to experience everything that this eclectic little town has to offer. Phoenixville began celebrating First Fridays back in 2004, and it has helped bring this town back to life, offering a terrific way for people to get outside and enjoy the music and the exciting vibe that it seems to bring to the streets.
This year, discover some of our newest locally-owned shops such as Threads Marketplace boutique (131 Bridge Street), The 3 Painted Pugs (24 South Main Street), a paint-and-stain store that sells upcycled furniture and home goods, Belle Haven (28 South Main Street), a home decor store, and Reads and Company (234 Bridge Street), an independent bookstore while enjoying live entertainment all throughout the downtown area.
Stroll the three blocks from Bluebird Distilling Company (100 Bridge Street) to Stable 12 Brewing Company (368 Bridge Street), and you’ll pass three more craft breweries, a beer tasting room, and two winery tasting rooms. Accompanying this boozy renaissance is a parallel dining boom: More than 25 eateries can be found nearby. Some of the newest additions, Uncommon Ramen (239 Bridge Street) and Nui Nui Kitchen, a Thai BYOB (301 Bridge Street), join established favorites like Molly Maguire’s Restaurant & Pub (197 Bridge Street).
This year’s First Fridays fall on:
- Friday, May 1st, 2020
- Friday, June 5th, 2020
- Friday, July 3rd, 2020
- Friday, August 7th, 2020
- Friday, September 4th, 2020
- Friday, October 2nd, 2020

Phoenixville First Friday
We absolutely LOVE Phoenixville First Friday and NEVER miss a chance to walk around town and listen to the bands staged strategically all around. The atmosphere is awesome … you will definitely “get” the vibe that makes this town so special! The vendors are mostly just informational, so I can’t really give that a 5 star; however, I believe most people are really just here for the food and the music, not really to shop. On the other hand, there are quite a few things for kids to do, including interacting with police and EMT’s, so that is a definitely a plus.
