List Your Event for Access JC Fridays on June 3

During JC Fridays, the public are invited to tour businesses, galleries, bars, venues and art-related spaces to see a variety of artwork and to enjoy the spirit and culture of the city as they mingle with other residents and visitors.

We invite you to stay open late during JC Fridays to host a special event, like openings for a new artist, live music or special classes! Events submitted through this page must have a confirmed location.

We encourage venue partners to provide large print materials, ASL interpretation, open or closed captioning, and sensory tours; and make their venues wheelchair accessible.
