Along with art features at host locations, the Artwalk Season Finale offers many other exciting experiences:
Artwalk Street Fair
The street fair footprint on Main St. stretches from 3rd to 6th, including the half-block from Main to the alley on 5th St. The event includes a City Council-approved, temporary suspension of open container laws within the Entertainment District. Event attendees who are 21 years-of-age or older may present a valid form of identification to a participating vendor to get an event cup and wristband. This will allow them to walk within the event footprint while carrying a cup of beer or wine.
The Artwalk Passport program guides event attendees to participating street vendors and host locations, where a representative at the location will sign or stamp the Passport. Once the Passport holder has gathered 6 stamps, they can turn it in for the drawing at the Moscow Chamber of Commerce + Visitor Center by 7:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 15. Those who enter the drawing are eligible to win prizes provided by participating businesses.
Participants are invited to explore multiple booths featuring local art vendors at the Artwalk street fair just to the north of Friendship Square.
Moscow’s local culinary arts businesses take center stage at Foodwalk, where participants can find a variety of food and beverage options located between 5th St. and Friendship Square on Main St.
Live musical performances will take place beginning at 4 p.m. at Friendship Square. The artist line-up includes DJ Def Jim, Corn Mash, and the Matt Mitchell Music Company at Friendship Square.
Kidwalk, a neighborhood of the Artwalk street fair designed just for families and children, is located between 5th and 6th on Main Street, and features art performances, vendors, and interactive demonstrations that are perfect for families. In the intersection immediately to the north of this will be space and supplies for chalk drawing on the street.
Public Works Fair
The artistry of multiple departments within City of Moscow Public Works will be on display on 5th St. Audience members will have the opportunity to make art and to experience the creative tools used by Public Works staff in their daily work.
