The Petoskey area hosts a variety of events, including our favorite special events list to the left that we look forward to every year!
The art world will descend upon Downtown Petoskey for its 12th annual Gallery Walk. This evening of art and entertainment is quickly becoming a community tradition.
Participating art galleries will greet guests June 16, 2011 from 6:00 to 9pm in an open-house format and offer delights for your eyes, ears, and taste buds. Many of the galleries will have the artists present to introduce their works.
This event is held on the Third Thursday of June every year.
As a wonderful and exciting wrap up to the evening, art lovers will get a chance to win some fabulous art donated by the participating galleries. Each gallery that you visit during the evening earns you another dot on your walking map, and each dot earns you a ticket to go in the drawing. Additional tickets are earned with each purchase that you make. The tickets will then be drawn at the After Glow Party. Thousands of dollars worth of art is given away each year.
Walking maps are free and will be available at the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce and the participating galleries. So, get a babysitter, grab your friends, and stroll around Downtown Petoskey and soak up the cultured atmosphere.
