Monthly Art Walks are great opportunities to see local art in a family-friendly environment. Over the last couple years, we’ve noticed the popularity of South Florida art walks rising in ever county. Below we highlight the 3 art walks that we take our families to on a regular basis…
This monthly event in Boyton Beach happens in the newly branded Boyton Beach Art District. While the acronym for this art district is BBAD, there’s nothing bad about this strip of creatively decorated warehouses. Headed up by renowned artist Rolando Chang Barrero, this art walk is celebrating its 4th year. Like all other art walks you’re used to, this one has live music and food trucks, in addition to all the killer artwork by local artists.
The Boyton Beach Art Walk occurs every 4th Thursday of the month.
Fort Lauderdale growing artist community (also covered in our post 12 Coolest Places in Fort Lauderdale) keeps getting bigger and bigger. We’ve been going to the Art Walk here for quite awhile now, and we’ve been seeing it really grow over the last year. People are opening up daily businesses here, more people are attending, and the art keeps getting better and better. A typical FAT Village Art Walk consists of lots of open galleries, DJs, bands, food trucks, and lots of craft vendors. If you haven’t been, it’s totally family-friendly.
The FAT Village Art Walk happens on every last Saturday of the month
Wynwood has exploded over the last handful of years. It’s gotten so big in fact, that the monthly Wynwood Art Walk has become a must-see event in Miami. Everyone and their grandma seems to come out to the Wynwood for the Art Walk. For this reason, we dub this the least family-friendly Art Walk in South Florida right now, BUT the art is absolutely world class. Make it out here if you haven’t been; just maybe leave the kids home.
The Wynwood Art Walk happens every 2nd Saturday of the month.
