Kendall Whittier Art Festival

#KWArt Fest is almost here! Join us April 11-13, 2019!

The entire Kendall Whittier district comes alive in April with local art vendors, gallery shows, food trucks, live music, kids’ activities, and special events up and down the streets. Bring your entire family! Friendly dogs on leashes are welcome, too!

The Kendall Whittier Art Festival showcases local artists all along Admiral Boulevard. Nearly 50 local artists will be in attendance, displaying and selling their work in booths along the street and inside businesses in a pop up shop. Vendors bring a wide range of wares, from paintings and pottery to body care and jewelry to leather and paper goods.

The festivities kick off with the second Thursday Art Walk in Kendall Whittier on April 11. The Art Walk is a monthly event where businesses in Whittier Square stay open late and host local artists, art displays and other activities. On Friday and Saturday, the streets will be closed and the art vendors, food trucks, musicians and Kids Zone will bring the district alive!
