Artwalk 2024 is here!  The first Wednesday Downtown Shreveport Artwalk is April 3rd from 5 – 8 pm.  Artwalk has something for everyone and it’s free…it is the Downtown Development Authority’s gift to the community.  The monthly event gives folks the chance to meet local artists, watch some create their works, buy local art, tour some of downtown’s cool buildings, and have an authentic downtown experience. 

The event provides live music, various food & drink options plus three hours of free entertainment all while exploring downtown.  As in the past, Artwalk has no starting place or stopping point so that means where you start, the direction you take, and where you end is all up to you!  A map to guide you for the event can be found at www.downtownshreveport.com/artwalk.
