White Street from Southard Street to United Street
Fancy a Thursday-evening art stroll along historic White Street? Join us for Walk On White on the third Thursday of every month!
Enjoy exhibition opening receptions, open artist studios, pottery-throwing demos, locally-made art, special events & complimentary libations as local galleries, studios & art-loving businesses open their doors for this special night.
Walk On White begins at the Historic Armory at 600 White Street, corner of Southard Street, and makes its way down to United Street - or in the opposite direction if this takes your fancy. Along this half-mile stretch you’ll find well-known galleries, discover artists’ studios, explore specialty stores & there are many global eateries to graze at along the way.
From its early beginnings in 1998, as an annual ‘Holiday Walk On White’, it soon evolved into a monthly event to promote local galleries & celebrate the arts. Walk On White helped establish this area of Key West as the ‘White Street Arts District’.
