September ArtWalk Performances, Sip & Shop, & Upper Main Street Ribbon Cutting
Biddeford’s upcoming ArtWalk is Friday September 16th from 5:30-7:30pm. More than 50 artists and businesses will be showcasing their work throughout our network of downtown businesses, gallery spaces!
The Biddeford ArtWalk is a free open to the public event celebrating local arts and creativity happening the third Friday of the month from 5:30-7:30pm from May – October. ArtWalks are an intersection of Maine’s contemporary art scene, its historic downtowns, and the natural world.
These self-guided walks lead you to some of Biddeford’s working artists, local businesses, and restaurants and cafés exhibiting local artwork. Different every time, an ArtWalk evening may include opening receptions, street performances, and visits to open studios. You can view works in progress and even participate in hands-on workshops.
