The Details

The question everyone asks right away is, "Are the streets going to be closed?" NO. We will not be closing any streets this year.

Salida Art Walk has evolved over the years to welcome all of the arts disciplines. We welcome the visual arts, performing arts, film and the culinary arts.

There will be no stages this year. Musicians and performing artists have been encouraged to busk and individual businesses are also encouraged to hire local musicians for their opening receptions or to play on the street.

Salida Art Walk is June 24th, 25th, and 26th
The High Country Bank kick-off event will be held on June 23rd (see schedule below)

Save the Date cards will be distributed by Memorial Day Weekend. (DONE - if you need more email us).
All locations will receive posters directly following the Save the Date Cards.
The week before Salida Art Walk we will be delivering banners and info packets as well as the programs.
Programs will be distributed in the mail directly to homes in Salida, Buena Vista, and Leadville.
