Arts! Arcata, produced by Arcata Main Street and the downtown community, is a great opportunity to meet local artists and enjoy being downtown at a safe, family friendly year-round community event.
The free, self-guided, public art phenomenon brings together art lovers and community friends each and every month on the 2nd Friday, from 6-9pm. It transforms downtown Arcata into an arts district, featuring the work of dozens of visual artists and live musicians at several locations. The event is free to the public and many locations stay open late offering guests wine or beer for a donation towards local non-profit organizations, plus snacks.
