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 is cancelled, but we still want to support art, music, creativity and community this Summer…

 

ArtWalk Summer on the Streets is the solution!   Spread out over 8 weeks, 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!

Arts Activities

Unleash your inner artist and create mini works of art with your art kits to go.  Art kits are pre-packaged, and there will be no shared tools. Distribution will follow social distancing regulations and supplies are limited.  There will be a fun activity provided each week of Summer on the Streets (July 3-August 21) and we hope to have in person art with handwashing stations for September’s larger event.

Sharing your mission and who you are…

Are you a non-profit or business that wants to share information about who you are to the community?

Sign up to have a booth at our September 150th Birthday ArtWalk! 

ArtWalk’s foundation is the collaboration of business, non-profits and the creative community working together to make Longmont a better and more creative place.  We hope you will be a part of that mission!

Maintaining a street presence outside your venue is open to all ArtWalk sponsors, free of charge, but we would love your support as we are a non-profit!

Do Not schedule the performance of musicians in the street, unless arranged with ArtWalk music coordinator at info@firehouseart.org; controlled placement for outdoor performances helps ensure that everyone’s experience of the event is the best that it can be.
