About Arts!Arcata

On September 1, 2013

Welcome to Arts! Arcata — Arcata Main Street’s official website of Arcata’s monthly Arts celebration.
For more information, visit our Facebook page.


See Art, Hear Art, Be Art in Arcata!

The free, self-guided, public art phenomenon known as Arts! Arcata brings together art lovers and community friends to the ever-growing downtown area of Arcata. With exciting and unique offerings around every corner, the city of Arcata in concert with Arcata Main Street  celebrates the arts each and every month on the 2nd Friday.

Arts! Arcata transforms downtown Arcata into an arts district, featuring the work of more than 60 visual artists and live musicians at 30 participating locations. The event is free to the public and has become a much-anticipated monthly event drawing visitors from all over the county.

Many locations stay open late and offer guests wine or beer and snacks for a donation towards local non-profit organizations. Arts! Arcata is a great opportunity to meet local artists and is an opportunity for the community to enjoy being downtown at a safe, family-friendly community event.
