The artistic side of St Augustine shows through on every street, whether it be the galleries, architecture, or historical landmarks. Most of the time you can only view a portion of everything as many studios are closed to the artists, and some galleries follow business hour windows that may close before you can get to all of them. When you visit our St Augustine FL hotels, there is one particular day each month that the lovers of art will not want to miss.
Take A Walk
Every first Friday of the month, there are galleries all around St Augustine that open their doors to the public to discover their works. There are roughly thirty different galleries that participate each month, giving visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy the works they hold. The artwalk consists of four art districts within historic St Augustine and takes place from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Whether rain or shine, the artwalk still happens every first Friday and you can pick up a map to give a self-guided tour of all the intriguing galleries and studios.
One of the best features of the art walk is that all parking is free after 5:00 pm to create an even more inviting event. You can find everything from fun gifts and paintings to sculptures and live entertainment in this eclectic event of creativity. Though the event only goes until 9:00 pm, many of the participating businesses and artists have after parties to celebrate at local venues like eateries and nightclubs.
