First Friday is a monthly event!

The Arts Consortium invites you to join us in Downtown Visalia as we celebrate Taste the Arts Preview Show and the performing arts!

The date is Friday, October 4th -- Let's celebrate the beginning of fall, as five visual artists from Downtown Visalia have been invited to showcase their artwork. 

The Visalia Arts Consortium is featuring a preview art show with many of the artists participating in our annual Taste The Arts Festival. A wide range of art will be on display, with work in a wide variety of mediums, including handcrafted jewelry and purses, bonsai trees, pottery and much more! Taste the Arts, the largest art festival in the San Joaquin Valley, is a great venue to view the creations of local artists and support their work and artistic community. Three city blocks in Downtown Visalia will be showcasing so much talent - Garden Street between Garden Street Plaza and the Old Lumberyard will be filled with art, music, food and activities for the kids. No previous art experience is required to enjoy the show! Join us on the First Friday Art Hop, at the Visalia Arts Consortium to get a preview of the Art that will be displayed on our biggest art festival!

We will also be featuring refreshing confectionary delights from Goodies Cookies.

It's gonna be a great evening for your entire family!

After you visit the Arts Consortium, stop by the other four venues during our monthly First Friday event and enjoy local artwork, free food, and wine!
