Mission Fed ArtWalk has been changed to October 2 & 3, 2021

We are announcing that Mission Fed ArtWalk, 2021 has been re-scheduled to October 2 and 3. We look forward to joining as a community to celebrate art, creativity and talent at Mission Fed ArtWalk on October 2 & 3, 2021 in Little Italy. We have worked closely with the City and County to come up with dates that will work for the largest number of people. CoVid health and sanitation protocols will be enforced based on the rules in place in October. 

All artists that have registered in Zapp for the April 2021 show are automatically registered for October 2 and 3.

With the postponement of Mission Fed ArtWalk to October and our planned ArtWalk @ Liberty Station show in August, we have also made the decision to cancel ArtWalk Carlsbad this year. This is a wonderful show with its own unique attendee demographics, and we look forward to bringing it back in September, 2022.

COVID-19 has been devastating the art festival world, threatening the livelihoods of artists as well as show producers. We look forward to continued support of the festivals and our mission of making art accessible to all, especially during this difficult time. We greatly appreciate the many participating artists for being flexible and confirming their participation in the October dates. We sincerely appreciate your understanding and continued support over the years!
