First Fridays

First Fridays in Ballston Spa 

The Village of Ballston Spa is a beautiful place to eat, shop and stroll. Ballston Spa’s downtown is the beating heart of the community and our small businesses and restaurants have been models of resilience and adaptability over the past year.  Whether it’s shopping for the latest in fashion, home goods, jewelry or personal care, discovering the perfect wine, browsing for unusual antiques, or taking advantage of relaxing spa services, you’ll find it here.  You’re sure not to go hungry, either.  For a small village, Ballston Spa boasts an amazing variety of eateries. For breakfast and lunch there are charming coffee shops, a trendy tearoom, a famous waffle establishment and a bustling deli, along with some cozy spots that are favorites with the locals.  Dinner offerings range from pizza and burgers to Indian, Italian, Asian and Southwestern fare, pub food to fine dining. Stop by the local brewery tasting room to cap off the evening. 

We celebrate the First Friday of every month, encouraging visitors to take advantage of extended hours and experience the many events happening around town. You can find out more about First Fridays under the BSBPA’s events page on Facebook.
