St. Petersburg's Second Saturday ArtWalk with over 40 galleries and studios in the Waterfront Arts District, Central Arts District, The EDGE District of St. Petersburg, Grand Central District Association and the Warehouse Arts District come together as one arts destination. Along with dozens of St Petersburg art venues, ArtWalk will be broadened for this one month to celebrate the BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit.

Featuring ocean themed art work, visitors will be the first to see new affordable works of art, as ArtWalk is Opening Night where many galleries and studios premiere new works. Some are only open on ArtWalk, and many offer demonstrations and refreshments. It’s impossible to take in the entire ArtWalk in one night! Plan to drive, walk, or take the trolleys to visit the districts of your choice.

Our free trolley shuttles will have an art guide on board talking about each venue on our one continuous trolley loop that goes from the 3rd Street and Central Avenue to deep in the heart of the Warehouse Arts District. You can park for free on 1st Ave N and 1st Ave S from 15th St to 30th Street. Additional parking will be available for trolley riders in the vacant lot at the Northeast corner of Central Avenue and 29th Street (Please note that this is NOT one of our trolley stops). In addition, venues with large free parking lots are Soft Water Studios, the Morean Center for Clay at the Train Station, the Clay Center of St. Petersburg and the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum.

Duke Energy is our sponsor. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, the Arts Association St. Petersburg Inc., the EDGE District, the Grand Central District, and the Warehouse Arts District associations coordinate St. Petersburg’s Second Saturday ArtWalk.

Handmade, one of a kind, unique, local art make excellent gifts! It’s impossible to take in ArtWalk in one night so please download the map for a list of participants to plan your artful evening. Browse, watch and purchase “Where Art is Made”!
