The St. Claude Arts District — Second Saturday Art Walk

The St. Claude Arts District is located in New Orleans' Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods, from the fringes of the French Quarter to the Industrial Canal. Nestled into these neighborhoods are dozens of artist-run collectives and traditional galleries, fine craft boutiques, musical and dance venues, and cafes, restaurants, and shops that feature visual and performing arts.

The Second Saturday Art Walk is a showcase of fine visual arts, fine crafts, music, dance and other creative events that takes place in the St. Claude Arts District on the second Saturday of each month, from 6-9pm. More than 20 independent venues participate in the Art Walk each month.

"America's most vibrant community based arts district" - D. Eric Bookhardt, Art Critic
