Rain or Shine
Riverwalk Landing will turn into an extraordinary indoor/outdoor art gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, for Yorktown’s 12th annual Art Stroll. Approximately 50 regional artists will put their artistic talent on display along Water Street, as well as inside and behind the Yorktown Freight Shed. Visitors will find a wide range of art for sale including oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, glass, photography, jewelry, handmade soap, woodwork, and mixed media.
This event is free and open to the public and will be held rain or shine.
Not only is the public invited to visit the artists and learn more about their inspiration, but they can also participate in an annual community painting—a blank canvas set out for attendees to complete.
Enjoy a special musical performance on the Riverwalk Landing stage from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. by Audio Portrait, an acoustic harmony trio that covers songs from the ‘60s through today.
This event is free, open to the public, and held rain or shine.
