Since 1999, the “First Saturday” Artwalk in Downtown Santa Ana has been an epicenter of creativity, expression and inspiration for artists, art enthusiasts and those who simply want to engage in a vibrant, living city filled with culture.

The event is the single best night of the month for downtown artists, galleries and restaurants alike because of the 3,500+ monthly attendees visiting around 20 galleries/museums, arts and artisan street vendors, live art performances and special events going on downtown.

Currently, Downtown Inc. holds the special event permit and covers insurance for the event, books the art vendors, live art and music on the 2nd Saturday Promenade and print a downtown-wide event map each month. We have also helped coordinate with local artists and outside institutions who want to plug into Artwalk or a specific business/gallery on Artwalk but it’s important to note that the main engine behind Artwalk is the “unwritten” pact of dozens of special events and arts openings happening on the first Saturday of the month.
