Downtown Jacksonville comes alive each month at the popular First Wednesday Art Walk. The event, held rain or shine from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm, spans a 15 block radius in the core downtown area. Over 30 galleries, museums and other cultural venues, restaurants, bars and businesses participate each month.
Hemming Plaza is a good place to start. There you can pick up a map and check out the open-air artists in the plaza. And when you are tired of walking, enjoy a free concert at the comfortable Hicks Auditorium at the Main library. Programs vary, many featuring outstanding local musicians, and usually begin at 7:00 pm.
Best of all, the event and library performances are FREE!
