The sixth Ardmore Art Walk is happening Saturday, Nov. 4 — and organizers tell WStoday it will be the biggest event yet.

What is Ardmore Art Walk?
The outdoor event only features artists who have some connection to the historic Ardmore neighborhood. There’s an application process and only creators who design and sell handmade goods are allowed to display their works in yards throughout the neighborhood.
More than art
DOSE Artist Collective is in charge of live music. A stage at Ardmore Baptist Church (501 Miller St.) is a central location where six musicians and groups will perform throughout the day. There are also two musicians who will be set up along the route on Elizabeth Avenue + Rosewood Avenue.
The food truck area will be adjacent to the stage, with several local vendors set up to serve everything from tacos to sweet treats.

Hawthorne Rd.), Ardmore Moravian Church (2013 W. Academy St.), and Miller Park (400 Leisure Ln.). Make the most of your day with these pro tips:
- Wear comfortable shoes and prepare to get your steps in
- Bring cash and credit cards — some artists only accept one form of payment
