Downtown Vision has proudly hosted the First Wednesday Art Walk since 2003 to welcome people to DTJax and celebrate the community’s deep pool of creative talent.
Art Walk has returned after a break due to the pandemic and now takes place monthly! We invite you to bring your family, friends and coworkers for a self-guided tour of Downtown’s northbank core on the first Wednesday of every month. Explore three major hubs: James Weldon Johnson Park, The Jessie (duPont Center) and Vagabond Flea at The Breezeway at Vystar Tower, and all the businesses and public art between. Art Walk runs 5-9 p.m., rain or shine.
View participating venues and their programming. If on mobile, toggle between Map and List views. Click on a listing to view more information.
Join us for another First Wednesday Art Walk on June 1st!
Catch live music provided by Mas Appeal and grab a drink from the Art Walk Bier Garten!
