For a list of the businesses that are open, the Palace performers and street musicians, keep up with the details as they are announced on Downtown Bryan’s website.

Quite a few shops downtown will stay open late for First Friday, so you can get your fix of antiquing, book hunting, and boutique shopping during the event. The Bryan community is all about lifting each other up and supporting our neighbors’ businesses, and First Friday is a perfect event to support them. There are so many artists, musicians, business owners, and more in BCS and they deserve to be celebrated!
