Artlink hosts a complimentary trolley tour every First Friday, making it even easier to access Phoenix’s arts districts and destinations. We work with community partners to provide “Park-and-Ride Hubs,” where parking is readily available, and many of the tour stops are adjacent to Valley Metro Rail stations.
There are five Park-and-Ride Hub Stops:
There is a new way to find First and Third Friday exhibitions and activities. We invite you to explore a new online map: Phoenix Urban Guide (aka “PUG”).
PUG is a new destination map that connects Phoenix residents and visitors to cultural destinations, dining, retail and more. Currently in the BETA (or “puppy” stage), PUG was developed by Artlink Inc. through a ReinventPHX grant in partnership with the City of Phoenix Planning and Department, the City of Phoenix Office of Arts & Culture, Valley Metro, Downtown Phoenix Inc., the Phoenix Convention Center, and in collaboration with the Roosevelt Row, Grand Avenue, Central, and Warehouse Arts Districts.

Our goal with the route and the trolley hubs is to make it easier for downtown visitors to discover the full spectrum of arts experiences available on First Friday. With this system, you can ride light rail, or drive and park at a number of locations and have ready access to a free trolley to get you everywhere you want to go.
Discover all that First Fridays in downtown Phoenix has to offer!
We encourage artists looking to exhibit to visit galleries and art spaces to identify which may be most appropriate for your work. Contact the curator directly about their submission policy.
