Each month, Downtown Vision allows a limited number of non-profit groups to set up at Art Walk on a first come first serve basis. Due to the demand, we try to “share the love” and book each non-profit no more than four times (once per quarter) per year to give as many groups a chance to participate as possible. Exceptions may be made based on relevance to the monthly Art Walk theme.
