On the first Friday of every month, “Old Town” in Pompano Beach becomes the epicenter for art, food, and music!
Each event features live music, a DJ, craft beer, food trucks, arts & crafts vendors, and gallery tours at Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA). Old Town Untapped takes place at NE 1st Street and N. Flagler Avenue at 6 – 10 pm and is free for all ages to attend. Learn more at www.pompanobeacharts.org
