Take a Tour!

After you're done viewing the galleries make sure to stop by the Lancaster Press Building open house from 4:30-7:30pm. Explore the new Sales Model and tour other models while enjoying complimentary wine and cheese!



The Press Building isn't the only open house ready for guests! The Saint James School for pre-kindergarten students is a new Lancaster Mennonite School that will be located in The Parish House of Saint James Episcopal Church. It will offer high quality faith-based childhood education when the school opens in August. Learn more at their drop-in from 4-7pm!






Lancaster Burger Company, along with other fantastic food trucks, will be at the pop-up park on Prince Street from 5-9pm! Delicious burgers like the BBQ Bacon and the Mushroom Swiss will be available for your delicious Friday dinner. Plus all the beef is fresh from Lancaster, PA!

And don't forget dessert...


Who wouldn't want some free chocolate?


Visit Miesse Candies to see Birgham the Bunny (a giant chocolate bunny), and snap a photo to enter their social media contest to win a sweet Easter basket!

With flavorful foods and an amazing gallery lineup, First Friday is the event you can’t miss.

We hope to see you there!
