Art Week South Walton is an initiative of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County with the purpose to bring neighborhoods, organizations and businesses together to present quality arts and entertainment to the community. Spanning at least ten days, ArtWeek will feature visual, performing and literary arts programming in diverse formats and in various venues throughout South Walton and beyond.
AWSW events happen throughout South Walton and also in the northern part of Walton County. Events can take place in galleries, businesses, restaurants, outdoors, indoors, and in any traditional or non-traditional space – the sky’s the limit.
In its first year, Art Week South Walton will include ArtsQuest – a fine arts show in Grand Boulevard, Digital Graffiti – a projection art festival in Alys Beach, the Seaside Writers Conference, the annual one-night-only performance by Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet in Seaside and more! Our goal is for AWSW to include all kinds of performing, visual and literary art events, workshops, exhibits, concerts and creative experiences!
Interested organizations and individuals can submit an event to be included in AWSW. Submissions are accepted year-round but must be received by March 1 each year to be included in the current year’s Art Week. Submission forms can be downloaded online. We encourage arts organizations and businesses, galleries, artists, designers, architects, schools, communities and creators of any kind to come up with an idea to be a part of Art Week.
Most events have their own lodging partners, which we have listed on our VISITORS page. Lodging partners usually offer nice discounts to those coming into town for AWSW events.

Your event will be promoted on the AWSW website and in social media campaigns. Additionally, AWSW will be marketed locally, regionally and nationally through digital, print and radio campaigns. You will also be a part of the first-ever community-wide arts initiative of this kind.
