BURIEN’S FIRST FRIDAY
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST’S NIGHT OUT!

REMINDER: Burien businesses are throwing the doors open with Burien’s ‘First Fridays’ – an evening of uncommon experiences – starting TONIGHT, Friday, June 7!

Expect live, electrifying-to-relaxing music, unique cocktails, wine-tasting, art, fashion shows, bone casting, leather-making, and much more as you stroll through downtown B-Town, from 5 – 9 p.m..

With “Sip into Summer” as the theme for the inaugural First Friday, celebrate the season with live music on the sidewalks and summery drinks, even specialty beverages for your pet. You can explore your inner rhythm by joining a drum circle of hand-made drums and instruments.

First Friday festivities include the already-esteemed B-Town Beat Art Walk. Peruse the unique creations of local and regional artists, with the artists themselves, in many cases, be on hand to chat about their handiwork.

Festivities start at 5 p.m., and stores that normally close earlier will stay open until 9 p.m.

You will find all of the action for the inaugural First Friday in Burien’s business core—eventually expanding throughout the city. The core ranges along SW 152nd and 153rd Streets from 24th Ave SW in the cozy Seahurst neighborhood to First Avenue South. Find the fun, including participating businesses and their offerings, by going online to Burien’s First Friday Facebook Page.
