Oceanside is the home to military, surf, skate and NOW A THRIVING ART DISTRICT. Celebrating 1 successful year, this nighttime creativity fest host hundreds of artists, on the First Friday of every month. Join them as they promote their vibrant art community showcasing live performances, music, poetry, art education, culinary and pop-up art galleries embedded in local businesses and public spaces.
Oceanside is a community with tremendous potential – and it has been for many years, if not decades. However, with some notable exceptions, most of Oceanside’s leaders and stakeholders acknowledge that there is not a global visionary or exciting set of plans/projects to achieve this potential. Or…if there is an exciting vision/project for Oceanside’s future, it’s not well positioned right now within the community’s mindset or ethos to be achieved.
Yet, the Downtown Oceanside Cultural Consortium, the group responsible for the Oceanside Art Walk is a group of art, business and governmental individuals and organizations that are coming together to help envision and actuate the next step in making the Oceanside area a more enriched place to live and visit with a general purpose to develop a strong collaborative vision and effort that establishes Oceanside and surrounding communities as an important arts, culture, entertainment and tourism hub/destination that catalyzes economic prosperity and a high quality of life for Oceanside’s future.
And first on the Consortiums mission: Establish a monthly First Friday Oceanside Art Walk!!!
6pm – 9pm
