The Paris-Bourbon County Tourism Commission is proud to announce the return of ARTWALK! 2024 to downtown Paris on Friday, April 19th from 6pm – 9pm. 

ARTWALK! is a FREE community event designed to bring locals & visitors to the downtown historic district to enjoy all kind of things — arts, eclectic retail shops, a variety of restaurants, bakeries, museums, coffee shops, bars and even the local Farmers’ Market. Along Main Street, you can encounter artists, authors, makers, musicians, performing artists, singers, and more — on the street and inside the shops! 

You can even become “An Artist for the Evening” by participating in one of the many hands-on activities offered during the event. To learn more about getting involved, contact or call us at (859) 987.8744.

ARTWALK! 2024 is a family friendly event open to the public and is free to attend. Under the direction of the Paris-Bourbon County Tourism Commission, we recognize and thank all participating merchants and businesses for their support. Thanks to Blue Grass Federal for being this year’s event sponsor. Come out and enjoy our community!
