What is SummerNight?
This year's SummerNight Downtown Art Walk has been rescheduled for the FALL, the evening of Friday, Sept. 18 and will transform into An Indian SummerNight. The 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 musicians, street performers, great food and children's activities. 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 the Auburn Downtown Merchants Association host this event to highlight the many talented artists in our community in addition to promoting our unique downtown area.
During this event, 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!
The event will kickoff with a Starting Line Party and Parade beginning at Pebble Hill at 5 p.m.! Individuals, local organizations and local groups are invited and can show off their creative side with costumes and participate in this exciting new addition to SummerNight!
In addition to the arts festivities, the Art Walk also includes a culinary contest. This year's theme is apples! Be sure to enter your apple creation in An Indian SummerNight Apple Extravaganza Culinary Contest for a chance to win fantastic prizes!
SummerNight is free to the public and open to all ages. For more information, contact the JDCAC at (334) 501-2963.
