Celebrate the richness and diversity of our local arts community.
Arts! Arcata transforms downtown Arcata into an arts district, featuring the work of more than 60 visual artists and live musicians at 30 participating locations. The event is free to the public and has become a much-anticipated monthly event drawing visitors from all over the county. Start at the Arcata Plaza.
This free, self-guided, public art phenomenon brings together art lovers and community friends to the ever-growing downtown area of Arcata, sponsored by the city of Arcata and Arcata Main Street.
In compliance with California state mandates, and in consideration for the health and safety of our residents, public events and festivals have been cancelled or postponed. Before making plans, please check the event or festival website or Facebook page.
Some arts and culture events are now happening online. Check them out at our Events for Current Month page for more information.
