This is a family-friendly, accessible event open for all to enjoy!
“We are thrilled to be able to offer the full Whyte Avenue Art Walk experience again this year after two years of modified events. It feels wonderful to be able to connect in person, walk the streets of Old Strathcona, and meet some of Edmonton’s many talented artists seeing their work with your own eyes.”
– Jill Roszell – Producer, Whyte Avenue Art Walk/Ice on Whyte
“Whether you are adding to your art collect or thinking about starting art, you will be inspired by the diversity and quality of art found at The Whyte Avenue Art Walk. The Paint Spot is proud to continue a 27-year tradition of lending support and mentorship to the artists and the festival because it makes a significant contribution to the income for artists. Its a huge celebration and showcase for the artistic talent in Edmonton.” – Kim Fjordbotten, owner of The Paint Spot an award-winning art materials store run by artists.
Music returns as part of the 2022 Whyte Avenue Art Walk with an incredible line up of Edmonton musicians curated by March Music and sponsored by the Old Strathcona Business Association. These performances will take place in the gazebo that McIntrye Park is known for. Please see our website for a full list of performers and set times.
On the Spot Pop Up also returns as part of Whyte Avenue Art Walk this year. This micro market showcases some of the best Makers in Edmonton whose unique work falls outside of the mediums associated with the Art Walk but is skillful all the same. On the Spot will be in the Strathcona Backstreet just off 83 Avenue.
The area will be in full fun activity on early Saturday July 9th with the return of our MLA, Rachel Notley’s Pancake Breakfast from 9am until 11am in Wilbert McIntyre Park. To add to the excitement and bustling, indoor and outdoor vendors from the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market are open from 8am until 3pm.
The Whyte Avenue Art Walk is a great opportunity to spend a day visiting all of what Old Strathcona has to offer with many events, businesses, restaurants and more.
Come join us for the return of the Whyte Avenue Art Walk. It is a spectacle not to be missed!
