About Scottsdale ArtWalk:
“America’s Original ArtWalk” is much like a large, easy-going open house for the Scottsdale Arts District. It is a time when all member galleries belonging to the Scottsdale Gallery Association (SGA) open their doors to the public and show off the work of some of the Southwest’s most outstanding artists. Proceed at your own pace, wander into galleries that capture your fancy, stroll around a delightful area punctuated by dramatic statues, bubbling fountains, tree-covered courtyards, famed restaurants, live music, food trucks and more. Horse-drawn carriage rides, during cooler months, and trolley rides are often available from plentiful free parking areas nearby. Look for valet parking service, available on Main Street for the special event ArtWalks.
