belfast friday artwalk
On every Fourth Friday the streets of Belfast are transformed into a whimsical wonderland to celebrate the warm summer evenings. From 5:30 until 8:00 pm you may follow the sound of music, where on any corner a fiddler, crooner or cool jazz soloist will entertain, or across the way a lively dancer will leap and whirl, a persuasive poet will wax eloquent, and perhaps a mime can charm you with silent illusion.
Explore imaginative art galleries that brighten up downtown, featuring both local and nationally recognized artists. Look for the ever-changing and always enticing Pop Up Art Tents coordinated by Our Town Belfast, ‘farm to gallery’ food tastings coordinated by Maine Farmland Trust and ‘Walking Art Host’ Robin Jones provides a ‘leisurely-crawl commentary’ (as opposed to a running commentary) on everything you’ll see during Art Walk.
