First Friday is a big deal in Lancaster City. Art galleries, studios, museums, restaurants, shops, and attractions stay open late, celebrating arts, the community, and the city itself.

Here are three of the events worth checking out, fun for people of all ages.

A celebration of Black American composers

First Reformed Church will host a concert celebrating Black American Composers.

Selections include two works by Florence Price, “Introduction: Maestoso” from First Sonata for Organ, the well-known “Adoration”, William Grant Still’s “Reverie”, and more.

This series of free 30-minute concerts are a gift to the community from First Reformed Church. Only 30 minutes in length, the free concerts start at 8 pm each First Friday of the month. Doors open at 7:30 pm.

Address: 40 E Orange St, Lancaster, PA 17602

Love Letters, Vol. III

Did you know that your capacity to love another is directly proportional to your capacity to love yourself? LSJ Studios' "Love letters" creatively celebrates, encourages and affirms the practice of self-love.

This month Loryn Spangler-Jones celebrates the concept of self-love with over one hundred mini originals covering the walls of LSJ Studios. With a record breaking number of original works, Spangler-Jones celebrates this vital and often under-celebrated form of love throughout the entire month of February, and the collection opens to the public this Friday.

Address: 104 W Chestnut St 2nd Floor, Lancaster, PA 17603

Free admission at the Science Factory

The Lancaster Science Factory is free to enter every First Friday from 5 pm to 7 pm. Here, your kids can explore over 75 hands-on exhibits. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.

Address: 454 New Holland Ave, Lancaster, PA 17602
