Come out on the First Friday of each month (excluding January) and enjoy all that Historic Downtown Manassas has to offer! First Friday events provide a fun way to interact with the community while experiencing Downtown Manassas. Participating First Friday locations agree to stay open until 9 pm and often provide a fun game, special discount, or activity that fits the shared theme for the month. From unique shops and a variety of dining options to live music at outdoor venues, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
