The Nelson & District Arts Council (NDAC) is thrilled to announce the 35th annual ArtWalk, celebrating all things art in the region.

ArtWalk kicks off the summer season with opening night on Saturday, June 24th from 6 – 9 p.m.

There are more than 20 venues and 45 artists to experience in downtown Nelson and beyond.

Opening night will feature performers throughout the downtown to entertain the wandering public as they walk from venue to amazing venue.

There will be entertainment, including stilt walkers, singers, musicians and more.

The second opening night happens on Saturday, August 5th where there will be a complete change of the art that is on the walls.

The public is invited to come out on these nights to support the local arts community. 

There will also be five mini-performance areas around town to entertain the wandering art lovers with their musical performances.

All of these are listed on the 3000 brochures all around town, on website at and on social media.

Keep your eyes peeled for Bessie Wapp on stilts as well.

NDAC wants to thank business owners for participating in ArtWalk and supporting the local arts community.

The event populates unique venues with quality, locally produced artwork chosen by the venue operator to fit their walls and business branding. 

Both professional and emerging artists will be on display and of course for sale.

NDAC is very honoured to be able to work to support artists in a multitude of ways and they hope the community will join them and come out on Saturday, June 24th and admire some art and buy some art.
