25 years of thinking
Outside the Box

June 22 - 25, 2017

Visit the Upper Arkansas River Valley this Summer and immerse yourself in the 25th annual Salida Art Walk, presented by High Country Bank. This historic mountain town is the home of the first certified Creative District in Colorado, and once you visit you'll know why. This town lives and breathes creativity everyday, all year long.

Salida Art Walk features the best local and regional artists exhibiting their dynamic works, musicians both on the streets and at participating venues, a variety of unique street performers, and artist demos in many locations throughout the event.
