Here’s a normal-times headline: First Friday returns to the Art District on Santa Fe
On the heels of UMS announcing its in-person return this year, another Denver summer main staple says it’s back. The Art District on Santa Fe will resume First Friday Art Walks, where swarms of pedestrians descend upon the galleries, restaurants and shops on Santa Fe Drive every first Friday of the month.
The first First Friday runs from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on June 4.
While attendees are invited to do their normal First Friday thing, the art district said businesses will monitor their capacity and may make people wait outside if it’s too packed inside. Face masks will be required, as will as much social distancing as possible.
Back in April, shop owners on Santa Fe told Maggie they were cautiously optimistic about a return to some normalcy this year, considering infection rates were trending in the right direction and more people were being vaccinated.
