Join us for an evening where over 30 regional artists magically transform the garages of Macon Alley into mini-galleries as they display, sell and even demonstrate their work. Enjoy live music, savor wine and beer tastings, and help us celebrate the rich tradition of arts patronage and collection that continues to thrive in German Village. Use the back of your Art Crawl ticket as a passport to traverse Macon Alley and sample a portion of the best culinary offerings in German Village. Sample a bite of the Village’s best restaurants so you’ll know where you want to grab dinner after the Crawl!
The Columbus Arts Festival began in 1962 outside the Statehouse. It has since become one of the best arts festivals in the nation, attracting hundreds of highly acclaimed artists from throughout the country. The annual outdoor festival is typically a three-day event held along the city’s beautiful riverfront. In addition to the art, a wide range of food and drink from local restaurants as well as live music and theater performances round out the festival for three days of fun in the sun!
