New! 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle

2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle in Alameda

There’s always something happening in Downtown Alameda during the 2nd Friday ArtWalks, whether your interest is in attending artist receptions, dancing to live music, or having fun shopping and dining. And now the 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle makes it even easier to experience a fun-filled evening.

The new 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle loops around the island from 6:00pm to 9:00pm with several stops along Park Street, Jingletown, and Webster Street. Guests can go from venue to venue at their own pace by walking or catching a ride on the hourly loop shuttle.

The launching of the FREE 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle was made possible by a grant from the City of Alameda’s Public Art Fund along with sponsorship from Sierra Nevada, MV Transit, and ARTPUSH.

2nd Friday ArtWalks are free to attend. Check the official website for updated show listings, walking map, and shuttle schedule: www.fridayartwalk.com
