Celebrating the Short North Arts District Gallery Hop
Not every city gets to truly appreciate the richness of its local artists. Far too often the cultural expression that lives in the heart of a city gets lost in the sea of banks and businesses. Fortunately for Columbus, we have the artsy Short North District and its monthly Gallery Hop.
Famous across the Midwest, the Short North Gallery Hop takes place on the first Saturday of every month and draws thousands to High Street and surrounding avenues. Visitors come downtown to celebrate local art with gallery exhibitions, street musicians, special promotions, performances, and a wide range of food and drink.
Gallery Hop Saturdays are some of our favorite days of the whole year. There is an exciting, vibrant energy that takes over and puts everyone in a great mood, ready to sip a cold beer and discuss the experience of art, music, and culture happening on the sidewalks and streets right outside our doors.
Primary hours for the event are 4:00pm to 10:00pm but we’re celebrating all day long and into the wee hours of the morning. This year’s Gallery Hop schedule is as follows:
Come on down and celebrate art, culture, amazing gourmet food, and you favorite drink. You’ll hear the whole place buzzing with talk of the musicians, art exhibits, and cultural celebrations happening all throughout the Short North Arts District.
