The year of 'The Longest Footpath Art Gallery'

Emerge like a butterfly from a long, dark, isolated Winter....and come and experience a Spring-time event like no other!

We know times are strange, so this will be ArtWalk, but not as you know it! It will still be edgy, delightful and surprising but instead of our usual one-night street festival, you are invited to explore multiple locations across Port Macquarie-Hastings over the course of a whole week! We may not be able to meet in large gatherings or encourage getting up and close and personal but that is not going to stop us from offering the perfect platform for celebrating the creativity that resides in this perfect piece of paradise. 

Join us as we create THE LONGEST FOOTPATH ART GALLERY in the CBDs of Port Macquarie, Wauchope and Laurieton. The extensive ArtWalk 2020 Program also includes Artists Markets and over 40 satellite events.  

That’s right, we are taking ArtWalk onto the streets and into local businesses by encouraging artists to use shop front windows as their very own GALLERY for a week. Day or night, you will be able to stroll (socially distanced) and enjoy all this region’s creatives have to offer. 

Check out this year’s range of programs offered for locals and visitors alike on the Programs+Map page.
