This year, the Art Walk is introducing an exciting change to the event layout. Artists will now be lined up on both sides of Highway 98, allowing for even more exposure and accessibility to their creations. This will also help avoid the construction taking place downtown.

Artists will also be stationed across the street in front of the Fort Walton Beach Library, ensuring that visitors can access all the incredible talent the city has to offer. 

  • A conveniently located crosswalk at this location will facilitate easy and safe access for attendees..
