The Nelson and District Arts Council is proud to be hosting an event that has been instrumental in supporting local artists for three incredible decades. Artwalk is excited to increase its programming in celebration of this milestone: this year there will be two fabulous openings.

The first gala event is on Friday June 29 th at the ArtWalk venues throughout Nelson and another on Friday July 27 th during the West Kootenay EcoSociety’s MarketFest where ArtWalk will be host the Stanley Street stage.

Artwalk allows for visual artists who wants to be involved in this staple of Kootenay Culture, complete with music, dancing and crowds of people admiring your talent and skill.

Let the Nelson District Arts Council do all the heavy lifting. Artwalk takes care of the promotion, securing the perfect space and filling the ‘seats’ with all kinds of arts lovers.

The support given to artists is just one of the reasons people come back again andagain to the ArtWalk experience.

Artwalk is the perfect way to open doors that might not normally happen. Not only do local artists show their work but also space and products.

In its 30th year, Artwalk has a wonderful reputation of having top quality artists in wonderful local venues. One of the best nights of the summer… fun, family, culture and beauty.
