2017 SummerNight Downtown Art Walk Recap

The SummerNight Downtown Art Walk is an arts festival that transforms downtown Auburn into its very own arts district, featuring the work of local and regional artists, live music, a Starting Line Party and Parade, merchant specials, children's activities, and a culinary contest. Each year, the City of Auburn/Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center (JDCAC), Auburn Arts Association, the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities (Pebble Hill), and Auburn Downtown Merchants Association host this event to highlight the many talented artists in our community in addition to promoting our unique downtown area.

The event kicks off with a Starting Line Party and Parade beginning at Pebble Hill! Families, individuals, local organizations and groups are invited to participate and can show off their creative side and participate in this exciting new addition to SummerNight! The Starting Line Party gives everyone an opportunity to create parade-themed crafts and enjoy musical entertainment

During SummerNight, downtown merchants and restaurants remain open after regular business hours and people of all ages are encouraged to take advantage of this great opportunity to shop, dine and relax while enjoying the arts in downtown Auburn. Artists have works on display and live musical entertainment is provided. Make sure to bring your children too as they have an opportunity to participate in arts and crafts, as well as enjoy other attractions that change each year! Don’t miss out on this great, family-friendly experience in downtown Auburn!

In addition to the arts festivities, SummerNight Downtown Art Walk also includes a culinary contest. Keep checking for updates regarding the culinary theme of SummerNight 2018! Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

SummerNight is free to the public and open to all ages. For more information, visit www.auburnsummernight.org or contact the JDCAC at (334) 501-2963.
