Williamsport First Friday

Lycoming Arts is committed to promoting, supporting, and protecting the arts across Lycoming County. We believe in the social and economic value of the arts of all kinds, which strengthen relationships and build a quality of life that supports community development. When we bolster our local visual, performing, musical, culinary, literary, and natural arts, we foster a lively cultural center. This hub not only creates recreational and economic activities for our hometown community members, but also makes Williamsport and the surrounding region an attractive destination for visitors and tourists.

Here, we welcome you to browse our artist directory and the Avenue of Arts map to learn more about where you can engage with art in the community. Check out our events calendar and join our newsletter mailing list for updates about community events, art walks, public art, arts education, student galleries, and arts leadership training. Learn more about how you can support the arts through donation, membership, and volunteer opportunities.

Countdown to Next First Friday


The Mission

“…to foster Williamsport’s reputation as the Northern Tier’s regional cultural center by showcasing artists and their work. By doing this, First Friday strives to enhance the image and usage of downtown Williamsport as the center of our community and to imbue Williamsport with the power, the joy, and the beauty of the arts. The First Friday Committee is a sub-committee of Lycoming Arts. The mission of the Alliance (LCCAA) is to promote excellence in the creation, experience and active support of the arts for all of the people in our community and the communities they serve in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”
