SummerNight Downtown Art Walk 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! SummerNight Downtown Art Walk will kick off with a walking parade beginning at Pebble Hill and pre-parade party! Ending at Toomer's Corner, the parade officially starts SummerNight with a bang! Individuals, local organizations and local groups are invited and came to show off their creative side with costumes. In addition to the arts festivities, SummerNight Downtown Art Walk also includes a culinary contest. Keep checking for updated regarding the culinary theme of SummerNight 2017!
