South First Fridays are an eclectic evening of arts and culture in downtown San Jose's SoFA arts district, centered on South First Street. Held on the first Friday of every month, the arts venues on South First Street are all open from 7 until 11pm and offer free admission and a wide variety of live entertainment. It's a lively scene attended by arts-lovers of all ages.

Don't miss our special activity for South First Friday on February 1st -- we're giving you a chance to make your own felt mola! Fun for all ages!

What is a mola? Molas are brightly colored applique panels made by the Kuna Indians of Panama. The term 'mola' can mean "cloth," "clothing," or "blouse." They are the Kuna Indian's traditional costume and are a proud, colorful expression of their Kuna identity.
