The Whyte Avenue Art Walk Introduces NEW Location for 2019

Tuesday June 18 , 2019

The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is back, and better than ever! We invite you to take a 4 kilometre walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to watch the creative process first hand in Old Strathcona from July 5-7! Over 500 visual artists will be creating in the streets. See something that catches your fancy? Support a local artist and take it home! Art Walk is a showcase of Alberta's hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many (as yet) undiscovered masters.

When: July 5 - 7, 2019

Time: 10 am – 5 pm daily 

Where: The event is a grand promenade along Whyte Avenue (82 Avenue) from 101 Street to 108 Street. New this year, tents will line 81st Avenue between 104 street and 105 street. It's a long tour, so bring your walking shoes!

This year's festival is relocating to accomodate an extra busy festival weekend. Over the July 5-7 weekend, Old Strathcona will also be hosting Found FestivalBoardwalk Sand on Whyte, and the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival.

Don't forget that Rachel Notley is hosting a street party Pancake Breakfast as well, on Saturday, July 6th. Please note the location change from McIntyre Park to 81 Avenue & 104 Street beside The Pint
