Nelson’s premier arts festival is back for its 23rd year.

The Grand Opening will be held on July 22 with an extravaganza of music, sand-sculpting and chalk artists, in addition to the wonderful work on display in a large variety of downtown Nelson venues.

Running for six weeks until Sept. 2, Nelson’s ArtWalk offers area artists the opportunity to have their work viewed by more than a thousand art-lovers; it gives downtown businesses a doorway into creative culture; and it’s a veritable visual feast for the ArtWalking public.

This cultural smorgasbord is served up by the the Nelson & District Arts Council with the generous support of the Cultural Development Commission, the City of Nelson, the Columbia Basin Trust and everyone involved.

Locals and tourists alike simply pick up a brochure and get ArtWalking.
