The Warehouse Arts District in collaboration with the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, the Central Arts District, the Grand Central District Association, the Waterfront District and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance invite you to the St. Pete Second Saturday ArtWalk, Father’s Day Edition, on June 14, 2014 from 5-9 p.m.

Ride one of our two red trolleys as they take you on a tour of over 30 warehouses, galleries and studios that are staying open late just for you!

This month’s Artwalk Trolley will begin at 4pm which includes a 4pm boarding location at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida (MFA). This coincides with their Beer Project event taking place during the day. There will also be an MFA-sponsored craft beer sampling at select ArtWalk venues (see list below). ArtWalk patrons can also pick up a scavenger “ticket” at each venue to enter into a drawing for prizes at 3 Daughters Brewing. For more details, visit

Aside from the boarding location at the Museum, our one continuous trolley loop goes from the roundabout at 10th Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. The shortened loop is to help reduce rider wait time! You can also use The Central Avenue Trolley ($.50) to reach galleries and shops on Central Avenue to Beach Drive.

The studios and galleries provide an informal, engaging social evening to drop in and meet our community's artists. Many will have demonstrations and refreshments. Be the first to see new affordable works of fine, glass, and clay art!

Handmade, one of a kind, unique, local art make excellent Father’s Day gifts! Ride the trolley to these venues or print the map and drive yourself. Browse, watch and purchase “Where Art is Made”!

The Father’s Day May trolley is sponsored by Duke Energy, Courtyard by Marriott, The Downtown Partnership, The Orsini & Rose Law Firm, The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and The Studio@620.

Free trolley parking can be found on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street.
