Mobile's Monthly Celebration of the Arts!

2021 ArtWalk Logo F

Celebrating the arts in downtown Mobile! LoDa ArtWalk is a free monthly event that showcases our visual, performing, and culinary arts community. This event takes place on the second Friday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Lower Dauphin (LoDa) Arts District. LoDa ArtWalk is made possible through a partnership between the Special Events Division of the Mobile Parks & Recreations Department and the Mobile Arts Council.

During ArtWalk, Dauphin Street is shut down for pedestrian foot traffic, and local art galleries, institutions, studios, and unique shops stay open extended hours for the public to explore. This family-friendly event is a staple of Mobile's arts community, bringing thousands Downtown to visit venues, eat at restaurants, and shop with the local outdoor vendors. A monthly infographic listing of ArtWalk participants can be located on the LoDa ArtWalk Facebook page and at the bottom of this page the week prior to each event.

This Month at ArtWalk

LoDa ArtWalk celebrates World Watercolor Month on Friday, July 9th! This event will highlight creatives within our community, including visual artists, musical performers courtesy of MOB Music Fest, and local chefs for a special focus on National Culinary Arts Month . Support your local artists, arts organizations, and downtown businesses at this fun, family-friendly event! See the official schedule below.

We will post special content on the LoDa ArtWalk Facebook page throughout the month for those who choose to stay at home.

The in-person ArtWalk will take place downtown from 6 to 9 p.m. Select restaurants and retailers will have sidewalk sales and expanded outdoor seating available, and open galleries will operate at a limited capacity. We encourage masks for those not vaccinated, social distancing, and frequent sanitation to all participants in this event.

We encourage all attendees to consider purchasing artwork from a local creative or donating to an arts organization that they would typically support at this time. Let’s stay #MobileStrong and #SupportTheArts
