Birmingham, AL


Artwalk is a two-day arts festival that transforms Birmingham’s downtown neighborhood into an arts district, featuring the work of more than 50+ visual artists, live musicians, street performers, food and drink vendors, and children’s activities.

It is free to the public and has become a much anticipated fall event, drawing more than 10,000 people to the streets of downtown in the past.

Through the good will of area businesses and the work of a dedicated staff of volunteers, Artwalk hosts established and emerging regional artists in the unique and architecturally rich setting of downtown Birmingham. Art lovers will see original work in all mediums priced from the affordable to the extravagant. Participating artists are predominantly from Birmingham and surrounding communities, showcasing the wealth of regional talent.

People of all ages can enjoy being downtown at a safe, family-friendly, community event. Friday night has been compared to a huge gallery opening with a street festival atmosphere, while Saturday afternoon caters more to the family crowd with special children’s activities, with the Artwalk KidZone from 10am to 6pm, where you can create your own “make and take” arts and craft activity. Artwalk KidZone is available on Saturday ONLY.
