Cornwall’s amazing arts scene will come alive with Art Walk this Friday, August 19th in Downtown Cornwall.

From 4pm to 8pm, Pitt Street will transform in a pop-up arts district complete with visual artists, buskers, performers, live concerts and more.

“Our first Art Walk in June was extremely successful and we’re hoping for a great turnout again this time around,” said Mandy Prevost, a member of the Art Walk organizing committee. “It’s the perfect chance to discover some amazing local artists while also exploring our beautiful Downtown area.”

Pitt Street will be closed from Second Street to the entrance to the Cornwall Square with various makers and artists lining the street. The fun continues further south to the Historic SDG Jail will there be a variety of family-friendly activities taking place on the front lawn.

“Dozens of artists, musicians, makers and community groups are taking part in the event,” Prevost added. “It’s a true community celebration.”

In addition to the Art Walk activities, various shops and restaurants will be open for those looking to enjoy a drink and a meal on a patio or to seek out that special product or gift.
