Windsor-Essex

Walkerville Art Walk & Rock 2017

Friday, July 21, 2017 to Sunday, July 23, 2017

 

Details:

Friday July 21 – 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Saturday July 22 – 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
(note: many businesses and patios will be open and extended until 2am both nights)

Over 45 Local makers will be set up in booths displaying and selling their hand crafted goods in three locations:

Wyandotte St between Devonshire rd & Kildare
Walter Kelly Funeral Home Parking lot.
Willested Resturant parking lot

 

Participating businesses will be partnered with a variety of local artists to display and sell their wares. There will be live entertainment, face painters, extended patios, outdoor artists, and fun for the kids.  Many restaurants will be extending their patios out into the street providing opportunity to relax and have a beverage or try their delicious fare.

This year’s event is proud to partner with Art Attack Windsor to host their Motor-Makeover Movement. Local artists have painted murals and designs on otherwise abandoned and retired automobiles. These cars have been repurposed, recycled and reused to become a beautiful art installation and the Walkerville BIA is excited to be the first area in the City to have them on display!

Exodus Escape Room’s mobile game is an opportunity to see what escape rooms are all about. Or, for experienced players, you will find this 10 minute room challenging as you race to try and save Windsor. Search for clues, solve the puzzles and find what you need to complete the task.

Check out the Paris Themed section of Chilver just south of Wyandotte St. E. with live jazz and special treats!

Blackburn Radio will be hosting an Ice Cream Bar on their lot – corner of Wyandotte St. E. and Argyle! Yum!

And lots more!

Bring the entire family!

Wyandotte St. E. will be closed to traffic between Gladstone and Devonshire during the event.
