Art Detour


Did you hear? Phoenix Magazine named Art Detour the “Best Arts Festival” in 2015!

Save the Dates!

Art Detour 28

March 19 and 20, 2016

The event that helped launch the First Fridays Art Walk phenomenon, Art Detour acts as a roadmap–guiding visitors to explore the arts and culture of our city and discover the myriad of art spaces downtown.

It also offers a chance for visitors to meet artists in their working environment. The event features self-guided tours of over 100 artist studios, galleries, and other venues, as well as performances and activities. A “Kids’ Detour” with family-friendly activities will also be featured, as well as pop-up galleries, and docent-guided shuttles.

“Art Detour is one of the most important events in Phoenix’s calendar”
– City of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton
