District Wide Events

Third Friday Gallery Walk

It’s all happening on Harrison Street!  The Oak Park Arts District galleries are open for special events from 6:00 – 10:00 pm every Third Friday of the month.  Enjoy dinner in the district and stroll the galleries taking in the artwork of the gallery owners and their guest artists.  Many of our unique businesses keep late hours on Third Friday evenings as well.  For neighborhood ambiance, you can count on the Eastgate Cafe, the Buzz Cafe and Trattoria 225.

The next Third Friday Gallery Walk is May 20th. The evening’s special events kick off the Oak Park Art’s District’s street festival What’s Blooming on Harrison!
