January 3 @ 6:00 pm - 11:55 pm

Celebrating a new year, in a new decade is a perfect reason to visit downtown Sarnia during the first First Friday of 2020 happening on January 3rd. Start the evening with dinner at one of the many fine choices of restaurants or cafes. From there stop into the various venues and stores to shop and soak up the culture whether it be live music, visual artistry, or both. After that, there are many late night hot spots to enjoy not just a night cap or late night snack, but even more quality entertainment.
Remember, parking in the municipal lots is free after 6:00 p.m. so park your car and stroll Christina and Front Streets at your leisure during First Friday Cultural Walkabout. Reminder there is no overnight parking on city streets after 2:00 a.m.
Happy 2020 from all your downtown merchants, restaurants and cultural locations and thank you for supporting First Friday all year long!
