WE'RE BACK,
IN PERSON!

We are so excited to bring back the 13th biennial Frogtown Artwalk for 2022! Our free, self-guided tour takes you into studios, workshops and a series of pop-up galleries hosted by businesses in Elysian Valley. Wear comfortable shoes, and take your time to enjoy all that Frogtown has to offer.

 

Details including the Schedule of Activities, Venue List & Map are below. NOTE: each venue on the map includes a list of artists showing at that location!

The Frogtown Artwalk, produced by Elysian Valley Arts Collective, is our signature event that happens on a biennial basis. By creating an artist profile, sponsoring the Artwalk, or donating to our fundraiser, you directly give back to our artist community, which allows us to provide low-cost or free art programs for the youth and community of Elysian Valley.

We strive to be a car-free and low-impact festival. Street parking in Elysian Valley is very limited, so we encourage visitors to ride their bikes, take public transportation, or ride-share to the event.

Be sure to check out our Visit The Artwalk page for more transportation information and options.

One of the best things about the Artwalk are all the activities and events taking place. See below for the schedule of activities, music and dance performancesmap, and list of venues. Check back often as events are being added daily.
