May '24 Loda Artwalk


LoDa Art Walk

Every second weekend of the month, on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m., downtown Mobile comes alive during ArtWalk! This is the perfect event to get friends together, take the family out or go for an evening stroll and join folks to enjoy the latest in local art, music, food and culture. Grab a drink or beignet and browse local galleries, public spaces and pop-up markets. ArtWalk celebrates Mobile's diversity; visitors will find both the contemporary and traditional, from crafts to furnishings, while enjoying all the flavors of Mobile, grab a table and take in the scene or a bite to go from one of the food trucks and be part of the scene. The community-wide art show is a perfect way to "do as the locals do"  while getting a taste, ear- and eye-full of all things funky and charming that our coastal city has to offer. The event takes place through a partnership between the Mobile Arts Council and the City of Mobile Special Events department.
