Once a year, downtown Redmond businesses showcase Redmond student’s artwork during the Youth Art Walk. This year’s art walk will kick off Redmond’s Third Friday Strolls on , from 4 to 8p.m. with 25 plus businesses participating.
The Redmond Chamber of Commerce has organized the Youth Art Walk for 18 years and placed the focus on the talented students in Redmond School District. The students who participate ranging from Kindergarten to high school, come from the private and public schools, as well as homeschoolers.
“The Youth Art Walk is a great family and community event,” said Karen Sande with the Redmond Chamber of Commerce. “Everyone is welcome to enjoy a showcase of visual, written, performing arts, demonstrations, and live music.
The Third Friday Strolls are to encourage people to come downtown and see what Redmond has to offer. Local products, shops and services are all within reach in our downtown core. This is a great opportunity to socialize with neighbors, meet business owners, and keep dollars working in the community we love to call home. We have over 25 businesses that will be participating from the Y to the Y on 5th, 6th and 7th streets.
