ArtWalk is a cultural event series in Longmont for arts lovers and future arts lovers. We connect arts, business, nonprofit, and education to celebrate local creativity.

ArtWalk is the Firehouse Art Center’s twice yearly Community Festival that brings together local artists, businesses and nonprofits. It is an event that highlights art, economy and creating positive change in our communities.  Due to the pandemic May’s ArtWalk was cancelled, but to support art, music, creativity and community this Summer, we created Summer on the Streets…

 

ArtWalk Summer on the Streets, spread out over 8 weeks, is our Saturday mini festival of pop up live music and art markets in the breezeways and alleys occuring each Saturday from July 3-August 21.  With the smaller size, we can safely limit the amount of people gathered at once, while still offering an opportunity for artists to share their art and music, all the while supporting our local economy.  Visit the Summer on the Streets page to see the weekly line up of artists and musicians and to learn more about CHALKMONT, our community chalk festival on August 21st!

 

September ArtWalk returns!

Then on September 11th, ArtWalk on Main returns!  We are SO EXCITED to share that 2021’s Fall ArtWalk on Main will also be Longmont’s 150th Birthday Celebration.  We will be partnering with the City of Longmont and Longmont’s Creative District to celebrate 150 years of what makes Longmont Strongmont!
