North Beaches Artwalk is a free event held the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 pm. Featuring many local visual artists and live performers. Artwalk is held at the Atlantic Beach & Neptune Beach Town Centers. Also at Adele Grage Cultural Center with a different featured artist every month.
With over 55 participating artists, Artwalk is a diverse art destination & shopping experience for the entire family. Local venues set the backdrop for this great monthly destination and community gathering.
The overall mission of Art Walk is to expose the community to the vast number of local artists right here at the Beaches and we thank all the local shops & restaurants for making it possible! We welcome talent from all over Jacksonville to join North Beaches Art Walk.
The North Beaches Art Walk got its start in 2007 when Beaches art-industry professionals JoAnne Adams, Alice Gartland and Linda Stewart came together in hopes of recreating the popular art walk atmosphere of Downtown.
Through their nurturing and dedication, the event has grown considerably since its infancy. And on every third Thursday of the month, the streets of the Beaches Town Center erupt with creativity.
What was once a small pool of carefully selected artists has now become a bubbling ocean of art, a place where woodworkers comingle with jewelry designers and musicians play into the night. Welcoming to locals and out of towners alike, to say it’s a communal event would be putting it lightly; it’s an experience.
Beachside Buggies provides FREE rides to the residents and visitors of the beaches community.
It’s a perfect way to get around town on the evening of NBAW.
