Downtown Ocala to host final art walk of season on May 6

Downtown Ocala will be hosting the final art walk of the season next week.

The First Friday Art Walk will be held on Friday, May 6, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., in and around Ocala’s Historic Downtown Square.

The event will feature local artists selling their works throughout the downtown area, live music including a performance on the downtown square by violinist Chris Barbosa, and hands-on art activities and demonstrations for all ages provided by local non-profit and cultural organizations.

Multiple downtown businesses will be extending their hours of operation for the art walk. If there is inclement weather, the event will be cancelled.

After next week’s event, the First Friday Art Walk will be returning to downtown Ocala in September.
