Scottsdale ArtWalk

Ongoing Weekly on Thursday

“America’s Original ArtWalk”

The 40-year tradition of Scottsdale ArtWalk takes place every Thursday evening from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. in galleries along Main Street and Marshall Way in downtown Scottsdale. Once a week, the galleries extend their hours and show off the work of outstanding artists. ArtWalks typically feature show openings, artist demonstrations, food samplings and more!

The process is simple – proceed at your own pace, wander into galleries, stroll around delightful areas punctuated by dramatic statues, dine in famed restaurants and enjoy live music all along the way. Horse-drawn carriage rides are usually available in cooler months and the free Scottsdale Trolley runs until 9 p.m. specifically for ArtWalk.
