Ypsi has had its ups and downs. At the moment, Ypsi is up. Businesses are cropping up, taking root, and becoming mainstays. A healthy existing business community creates a solid environment for new businesses to move in and grow. Now into its second year, First Fridays Ypsilanti has established itself as a channel to parade this transformation. The monthly event is a self-guided art walk hosted throughout downtown Ypsilanti at multiple venues. In an effort to showcase local talent while supporting local businesses, all venues offer free art events including displayed art, art workshops, and live music. Past music venues include ABC Microbrewery, Bona Sera, Ugly Mug Cafe, and Sidetrack Bar and Grill.

Galleries included: Artifact and Whimsy, 22 North Gallery, Riverside Arts Center, and Chin-Azzaro studio.
