First Thursdays

We’re bringing back First Fridays, but this time on Thursdays!

For those new to Helena, First Fridays were a way to support our downtown businesses later as they kept their doors open into the evening.

We know that the Helena community likes to get away during the weekend to ski, hunt, or camp, so we’re moving it from Friday to Thursday so that we can all support our local downtown businesses later in the evening. This will occur regularly on the first Thursday of every month, so keep an eye on this page for participating businesses, great deals, and possible events like live music and outdoor movie screenings.

In the meantime, here’s what you can expect so far for the next one on May 5th:
