Second Saturday Artwalk In St. Petersburg Is Back!
Just in Time for Holiday Shopping
Second Saturday ArtWalk has returned with renewed energy, life and most of all great artwork just in time for Holiday Shopping! Many of the studios and galleries of the Central Arts District, EDGE District, Grand Central District, Warehouse Arts District and downtown Waterfront Arts District will welcome visitors on Saturday, November 14th at various times throughout the day.
COVID guidelines will be in place at each individual venue. The ArtWalk trolleys will NOT be running this month due to not having enough space for social distancing. If you do visit an ArtWalk venue this week or on Saturday, be prepared to follow THEIR guidelines for entry into their establishment. Please note that each venue has different Saturday hours. Many of the locations are also available by appointment only throughout the week if you have some specific Holiday shopping you want to do.
