SummerNight Downtown Art Walk

Join Auburn Parks & Rec Friday, June 10 from 6-10pm for the SummerNight Downtown Art Walk! The event is an arts festival that transforms downtown Auburn into an arts district, featuring the work of local and regional artists, live musicians, street performers, food and drink vendors, and children's activities. Each year the Auburn Arts Association, City of Auburn, Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center and Auburn Downtown Merchants Association host this event to highlight the many talented artists in our area in addition to promoting our unique downtown area.

During this event downtown merchants and restaurants remain open after regular business hours and people of all ages are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity to shop, dine and relax while enjoying the arts in downtown Auburn. Artists will have works on display and live musical entertainment is provided. Make sure to bring your kids too as children also have an opportunity to participate in arts and crafts, as well as enjoy other kid specific attractions that change each year! Don’t miss out on this great, family-friendly experience in downtown Auburn!

In addition to the arts festivities, SummerNight Downtown Art Walk also includes a culinary contest. The SummerNight Committee encourages culinary artists to display their talents through a cookie contest. All are encouraged to submit their most delicious cookie creations for entry in the contest!

SummerNight is free to the public and open to all ages. For more information, please contact the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center at (334) 501 - 2963 or click here!
