Next Saturday marks the fifth year of the Sunnyslope Art Walk. And if "art walk" isn't among the first descriptors that come to mind when you think of the area due north of Phoenix, this free event on April 14 is bound to change your mind.
The walk will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. along Central Avenue between Dunalp and the canal. It will feature more than 100 artists showcasing and selling their original works, offering everything from the farmable and hangable to the wearable and the "I think it's a wind chime?" categories.
In addition, musical performances will be scattered throughout the event, including local acts, Cover Story and Snake Town; as well as Andy Naylor, Bella Q Dance Studio, Carol Pacey & Andy Borunda, Donjay, Full Moon Jazz, Refugees from the '60s and Sya. They'll even have various restaurants (and fast-food establishments) set up along the way to provide food and drinks to keep you going.
And if temperatures get too heated or you find yourself growing weary of all that fresh air, you can stop in any of the numerous businesses participating in the Art Walk includingDillon's
,Grinders Coffee Company
,Nielsen Design Studios
, and theSunnyslope Village Center
