Cool Art for a Hot Summer Night - Second Saturday ArtWalk

  • 11 Aug 2018
  • 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • St. Pete, FL


Come see the marvels of art and explore St. Petersburg’s five exciting arts districts. Open the door of a gallery you’ve never visited before, or try our free trolleys and a whole new neighborhood.

St. Petersburg's Second Saturday ArtWalk presents over 40 galleries and studios in the Waterfront Arts, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association and the Warehouse Arts District coming together as one arts destination.

Many of our ArtWalk galleries celebrate the opening of brand new exhibitions during ArtWalk. It’s an exciting time to see new work by local and national artists, enjoy refreshments and often live music. Meet up with old friends and talk to new people who support the arts like you do. Make an evening of it and stop for dinner, drinks or dessert at a downtown restaurant.

Painting, drawing, pottery, glass, sculpture, multimedia and more are constantly evolving right here in St. Pete. Take advantage of the creativity our city has to offer.

ArtWalk has become so successful that it’s now an official St. Pete economic strategy that supports small businesses. Shop local!

Many thanks to Duke Energy and Courtyard St. Petersburg Downtown for supporting ArtWalk!

Our free trolley shuttles will have an art guide on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop. You can park for free on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Soft Water Studios, the Morean Center for Clay at the Train Station, the Clay Center of St. Petersburg, and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.

The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is the umbrella organization serving this vital arts and cultural community. Join us in advocating for the arts, facilitating the growth of our arts community and driving arts-related economic development in St. Petersburg.
