First Fridays is a monthly event held on the first of the month providing fun, free shuttles and many surprises from the old town charm of City Island, NY.

On the first Friday of every month, the businesses of City Island's nautical neighborhood host an amazing event. We call it, First Fridays. The mission of First Fridays is to promote and support our area by providing businesses with an outlet to showcase their work.

Every first Friday night of the month, participating City Island area organizations unite to promote musicians, artists, and restaurants through extended operating hours. In doing so we hope to encourage a dialogue between businesses, artists and the community. This is a wonderful time to visit our everyday Zen relaxation and meet our friendly neighbors.
