Event Series: Studio Stroll 2023

November 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


It’s Time for the Two-Day Extravaganza we call Studio Stroll in the RAD!

The FREE ArtsAVL Connect trolley will be running on both Saturday and Sunday, taking visitors to all parts of the River Arts District where they’ll find artists working in their studios, demonstrating their processes, and the occasional “sips and snacks.”

Imagine the joy of finding a spectacular work of art that you may have dreamed of to light up your home, the perfect holiday gift, or a special indulgence to keep just for yourself! It’s all here my friends!

You’ll find plenty of parking as well as food and beverage options to purchase along the way where you can sit back and enjoy the view while delighting in the treasures you’ve found! Bring your family and your besties to experience this truly magical weekend together!
