Celebrating art and community in the Adirondacks

Third Thursday ArtWalks are back! June through September, the third Thursday of the month brings the whole community to the sidewalks and parks of downtown Saranac Lake. Artists, musicians, and performers will be showing their work, and everyone else gets the pleasure of enjoying it together! Hours are 5 - 7:30 p.m. and it is all FREE! Pick up the ArtWalk maps at any participating arts venue and start strolling the streets. Artists of all genres—visual and performance artists—and all skill levels, are mixed together throughout downtown, displaying or demonstrating their creative products.

ArtWalk dates for 2022 are: 

  • June 16
  • July 21
  • Aug 18
  • Sept 15

With a greater focus on fine arts and crafts, there will also be two outdoor ArtMarkets held, in conjunction with artist Studio Tours, the weekends of July 30-31, and September 24-25, 2022, as well as a special Mother's Day ArtMarket held at the Paul Smith's College VIC on May 8.
