Mobile's Monthly Celebration of the Arts!
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.
LoDa ArtWalk Artists
Each month, LoDa ArtWalk hosts dozens of artists who exhibit and sell their works. From jewelry to paintings and more, you’ll find a mix of unique, handmade items from both emerging and established artists. See this month's official vendors at the bottom of this page!
