Gulfport, FL (March 2, 2021) – Gulfport’s First Friday Art Walk returns to Beach Boulevard this Friday, March 5th featuring nearly 20 of the Tampa region’s most innovative artists alongside live entertainment in an outdoor and socially distanced celebration of creativity and community. The event runs from 5pm-9pm alongside the shops, restaurants and galleries that comprise the town’s cultural hub on Beach Boulevard and is hosted by the Gulfport Merchants Chamber.
Since it’s return in October, Gulfport’s First Friday Art Walk has again become a highlight on the region’s monthly arts calendar for artists and arts-lovers alike. This Friday’s show includes emerging and professional painters, jewelers, glassmakers, mixed-media artists and other creators.
This month’s Gulfport First Friday Art Walk also marks the six -month anniversary of the signature event’s return. Upon its return in October, the event brought a creative redesign and socially distanced format, providing artists and visitors an open, outdoor space to celebrate art and community each month.
As with all events hosted by the Gulfport Merchants Chamber, state and county safety protocols are met and exceeded under guidelines set forth in Gulfport STRONG, a heightened safety awareness campaign launched before the town’s resumption of public activities in September.
