THIRD FRIDAYS is the largest art walk in Northeast Ohio, taking place inside 170,000 square feet of industrial space that’s filled with over 40 galleries, studios and showrooms. On the third Friday of every month, venues on three different levels open their doors from 5 to 9 pm for a free open house of exhibits, all under one roof.

This century-old building on Cleveland’s near west side, known as 78th Street Studios, has been a growing incubator for businesses specializing in fine art, product design, publishing, music, fashion, and special events. Beginning eight years ago as a quarterly event among three galleries pulling a few hundred people, THIRD FRIDAYS is now a monthly attraction drawing 1100 -1500 visitors who come from all over Ohio and neighboring states.  

When you attend THIRD FRIDAYS, you can enjoy compelling installations in the permanent galleries, delicious food provided by the Touch Supper Truck and SPICE Kitchen and Bar, wine samples from Battery Park Wine Bar, a pop-up artisan market of temporary exhibits, and live music on the 3rd floor after 9 pm.  Experience a cool, retail adventure with your friends, interact with dozens of artists and designers, and discover authentic art, furniture and gifts made from the creative people of Cleveland.
