Those planning to stay in town for the Labor Day holiday weekend who are looking for something to do might want to consider first Friday activities in downtown Phoenix.

The monthly art walk is still on pause due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but some galleries, museums and other venues are open with special events for the evening. In addition, artists and vendors have resumed lining the sidewalks of Roosevelt Row, Grand Avenue and other areas downtown

If your plans include venturing inside a museum or gallery, be sure to have a mask handy as some venues are requiring face coverings for entry, even for those who have had COVID-19 vaccinations.

It’s best to check ahead with the venue you plan to visit to find out which policies and safety protocols are in place.

Following are a few of the first Friday activities taking place on Sept. 3.
