August 16, 2019 – September 7, 2019
Each year hundreds of people stroll the streets of Downtown Williams Lake as our downtown businesses turn into self-guided mini art galleries for three weeks. Downtown businesses are paired with local and regional artists of a variety of visual mediums. From paint and sketch, to pottery and quilting, to wood carvings and jewellery, and much, much more, you are sure to find something you love. Grab one of our Art Walk guides from participating locations and stamp your way towards our grand prize draw of $500 Art Walk credit to purchase art from one of our participating artists. All ages are welcome to participate. Pick up your Downtown Williams Lake Art Walk Guidebook at participating downtown business locations.
We have a few new ideas this year that we are excited to share!
Downtown Williams Lake Art Walk GRAND OPENING – this one-evening-only event will feature live music, live art, great appetizers, amazing company, and more! Stay tuned for more details!
Kids Art Walk – we are toying with the idea of a shorter walk for those who’s feet don’t take them quite so far.
