September 4, 2023 by No Comments

This Friday, Artwalk festival is coming to Akron. This event takes place from 5-9 PM at the historic arts district in Downtown Akron. What’s even more impressive is that it’s free so there’s literally no excuse for locals not to attend. This is described as ‘A quarterly celebration of the arts in Akron’s historic art district’ and promises live music, art, and movies. Not only this but as the sun is forecast for the weekend, this means that it ticks all of the boxes for a good time.

According to the official Facebook page, this event will be featuring genres such as jazz and blues, while also offering the chance to buy artworks from the listed vendors. This event is also targeted at families so if you have young kids then there will also be activities to keep them entertained throughout the evening.


Over the years, arts and culture have played a central part in the Akron community and its museum is one of the most famous in the US (it’s not just LeBron James who has made Akron famous!). With this in mind, you can expect some good art on offer from a variety of different artists. If you’re in Akron over the weekend and you’re interested then more information can be found here.
