First Friday hosts special Midnight Sun Festival kickoff party

share on:


Join the Downtown Association of Fairbanks as we celebrate the 2016 Midnight Sun Festival early by holding a kickoff bash on First Friday, June 3, on the Lavelle’s Bistro patio.

The evening includes a raffle, a First Friday venue scavenger hunt, giveaways and music. Event goers will be able to purchase – in advance of the Midnight Sun Festival, itself – the official 2016 festival t-shirt designed by Lauren Hatty! Lauren will also be joining us during the evening.

You can pick up this year’s logo on red and blue t-shirts or – for the first time ever – grab our logo on a hot, new black tank top and black trucker hat!

The scavenger hunt will bring together numerous downtown venues for a larger First Friday evening with hunters earning the chance to enter one of several raffles. To play, scavenger hunters will pick up a First Friday passport at Lavelle’s Bistro and then visit the venues printed on it. Raffle winners will have the chance to score cool Midnight Sun Festival merchandise!
