Vacation is finally here ! Presented by the SWLA Arts and Humanities Council the 2nd Annual Holiday Art Walk it’s Saturday, November 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is sponsored by Entergy.
The Art Walk is all about supporting and celebrating our local artists and businesses. It just so happens that this year’s event will take place on Small Business Saturday, one of the busiest holiday shopping days for small businesses in the country. So the timing is perfect! Plus, it gives us another great reason to get out and shop during this weekend’s 2nd Annual Art Walk.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes as there will be plenty to see with over 40 participating art vendors. The Art Market will be held at the Businesses on Ryan Street between Pujo and Mill Street. Also, on Broad Street between Bilbo and Ryan Street.
Stroll Broad and Ryan Streets to see window paintings featured by the Downtown Business Association. With all that walking you are sure to be hungry and they have you covered too. Food trucks will be parked nearby Barbers on Broad. Check out the beer garden and enjoy the hot chocolate stands. The little ones can join in the fun with children’s activities during the event.
A stage will be set up at the intersection of Broad and Ryan Street with live performances from Unsupervised dance studio. Other performances will include theater groups and musicians Mark Portier and Sophia Tassin, Morgan Allain, Daneisha Davis and Jason Sprick.

The art walk ends at 3 p.m. so everyone can head to the civic center to watch the annual meeting “Light up the lake” Christmas Celebration presented by the City of Lake Charles. The Lakeside Christmas Concert will kick off the Christmas festivities at 3:30 p.m. live at the Arcade Amphitheater, followed by the lighting ceremony and fireworks.
