Leaving Streaming Behind, the Santa Ana Artwalk Returns to Fourth Street This Saturday

After being forced to shut down in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Downtown Santa Ana Artwalk will be returning once more as an in-person event on Saturday.

On the first Saturday of every month, the artwalk welcomes art, local vendors, performances and festivities to downtown Santa Ana. The artwalk has been around since 1999, bringing in thousands of locals and others in the area to soak up the surrounding galleries, art centers and businesses.
