For 17 years ArtWalk has been a staple creative event in Downtown Charleston - each month bringing hundreds of people to stroll, shop and celebrate the local art community.
The monthly event is the third Thursday of each month March - December, except in June when it moves to the week of FestivALL and in November when it is the day after Thanksgiving. In 2019 ArtWalk is 5-8 p.m.:
June 20 (FestivALL)
Nov. 29 (Black Friday)
The original concept was the brainchild of Callen McJunkin, who then owned the Callen McJunkin Gallery on Hale Street, who pitched the idea to local galleries as a way to get people downtown, increase evening traffic and make art more accessible. The event launched with four participating venues but today has grown to more than two dozen downtown business participants each month.
