First Friday Art Walk
First Friday of each month, 5 - 9 p.m. at Plaza de la Constitucion
On the first Friday of every month, St. Augustine’s art galleries welcome visitors to browse the latest art exhibits at some 30 participating galleries.
This cooperative open house showcases the amazing variety of artwork represented in St. Augustine’s fine art galleries, from contemporary to traditional and everything in between, created by local and national artists working in oils, pastels, photography, ceramics, wood, textiles, metal, and much more. For a full list of participating galleries, see the table below.
Many of the featured artists are on hand to answer questions about their work. The monthly event takes place on the first Friday of every month from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., rain or shine, throughout St. Augustine's historic downtown area, from Aviles to King Streets, St. George Street and more —even over the Bridge of Lions onto Anastasia Island and the beach.
Old Town Trolleys provide complimentary, handicapped-accessible shuttle service to galleries in Historic Downtown St. Augustine. The shuttle service starts at 6:00 p.m., and passengers must have an Art Walk Shuttle Sticker which is available from member galleries. Those who wish to visit other participating galleries in Uptown, on Anastasia Island, and on U.S. 1., will have to use their own transportation.
Call (832) 779-2781 for more information or visit here. This event is sponsored by The Art Galleries of Saint Augustine, which is an artistic association of the diverse and eclectic art galleries located in the nation's oldest city.
When: 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. on the first Friday of every month.
Where: All through historic downtown and onto Anastasia Island.
This month ...
The First Friday Art Walk will re-open on July 3, 2020, with a limited number of galleries participating due to concerns about COVID-19. Organizers have outlined the safety restrictions that will be in place for this event:
"Old Town Trolley Tours will be the only transportation service participating in this month’s Art Walk, providing complimentary wheelchair-accessible shuttle service. The trolleys have made safety their #1 priority and have installed plexiglass dividers between each row so that groups can stay together. Masks are highly recommended on the trolley.
"The St. Augustine Distillery has kindly donated spray bottles of sanitizer for each participating Art Walk gallery. This will be the only way to ride the trolley.
"Old Town Trolley Tours will announce the galleries that are open near each stop. You are welcome to hop on and off the Trolley during their continuous loop at any designated stop between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m.
"We would also like to remind you of the recently passed City of St Augustine ordinance regarding face mask requirements."
