The Beacon Hill Art Walk is an annual event that takes place annually on the first Sunday in June, throughout the nooks & crannies of Beacon Hill’s North Slope. Beacon Hill residents open up their private gardens, alleyways, and courtyards and allow artists to display and sell their artwork. It is a chance for visitors to tour the private spaces of Beacon Hill while viewing original, handmade artwork. Thousands of people attend each year. It is a free and popular event in the neighborhood, with a festive atmosphere and volunteer musicians playing in various gardens throughout the day. Around 100 artists will be participating, with a variety of styles, media, and subject matter. For more information visit the website: http://beaconhillartwalk.org/.
The event will occur whether rain, shine, or heat wave. So grab an ice tea and support your local artists!
