|Recurring Event (See all)
Third Saturday of Every Month

Sanford Art Walk

The Welcome Center show is a juried art show judged by local judges, and all who attend this event can join in the fun by voting for the People’s Choice Award. The Judge’s Choice award is $100, and People’s Choice Award will earn a lucky artist $50—voting ends at 8:30 and the winner is announced then! Along with the Welcome Center show, area galleries and other venues host art, artwork and artists to showcase area talent with their own unique and individual takes on the main theme, and sometimes their artsy divergence from it. The Welcome Center will be featuring live music, as well!

Sanford Art Walk Background Information

The Sanford Art Walk is a monthly downtown Historic Sanford event, held on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 6-9 PM. Anchored by the Historic Sanford Welcome Center at 230 East First Street, up to a dozen various venues participate in the Art Walk in any given month (venue maps are available at each venue and at the Welcome Center). Come early for the West End/Celery City Craft sponsored Food Truck Bazaar at the corner of 2nd and Palmetto Avenues (5-8 PM). And after the Art Walk, stay late and enjoy dinner or a drink at one of the many fine downtown, historic Sanford businesses.

Sanford brings you the premier “local, downtown, historic, cultural” experience in Central Florida. Incorporated in 1877, Sanford is home to Lake Monroe and the waterfront along the St. John’s River, a bustling downtown historic commercial area with a multitude of local restaurants and bars, and nighttime entertainment throughout downtown and along newly remodeled Sanford Avenue.  Sanford is a bustling, vibrant, and safe city where residents live, work, play, raise families, and retire.
