Edmonds is an art lover’s dream. There’s art for every mood, in every medium, from fine art, performance art, and the written word, to dance, theater, music, and culinary art.
The best way to experience them all is at the monthly Art Walk Edmonds, every third Thursday 5 p.m.-8 p.m.
During this time of social distancing, the art walk is temporarily postponed. Visit Art Walk Edmonds to find out the latest.
Over 20 studios, galleries, shops and service providers open up their businesses to showcase local and regional talent during this free community event.
Founded in March 2002 by Manya Vee and Jeff Stilwell, incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2014 by Cole Gallery owner Denise Cole, and guided by a nine-member Board of Directors, Art Walk Edmonds offers artists a chance to show and tell, and visitors a chance to browse and buy.

Hundreds of visitors from as far as Mt. Vernon and Kent come to this walkable town, many for the first time, many returning. At any given Art Walk, over 150 visitors may show up. They come to explore diverse artists up close and personal, chatting, browsing, and quite often, picking up lifetime treasures.
Throughout the year, Art Walk Edmonds keeps up with the changing seasons in fun ways.
We often try to bring something a little extra to our Art Walks,
“For instance, we have hired musicians and food trucks for the summer months, built a scarecrow to join in the city-wide Scarecrow Festival in the fall, participated in the 4th of July Parade, and sponsored/supported other artistic events, such as the sand-sculpting contest, Edmonds Studio Art Tour, etc. We love our thriving art community here!”
Art Walk Edmonds also hosts the annual Edmonds Summer Wine Walks begun in 2015, in partnership with Seattle Uncorked, a regional wine walk promoter. The fundraiser takes place twice in the summer on Saturday night to benefit the Art Walks and Mural Project Edmonds. A lot of the area restaurants opt to waive corkage fees just for the event. Washington vintners take up temporary residence at various hosting businesses to share their hand-crafted wines with guests, who purchase tickets to sample and shop. The Wine Walk routinely sells out, with around 400 or so turning up on average, from nearby towns, even other states.
