Old town/downtown galleries & businesses showcase local & regional artists. Music & special events
Tourists and residents alike graze and sip their way along the waterfront, Old Town and Downtown sections of Eureka, where dozens of historic galleries and businesses showcase the works of highbrow and lowbrow artists alike.
Culture guru John Villani picked Eureka as one of the best art towns in America. By one estimate, there are more artists in Humboldt County per capita than any other county in California. If you visit Eureka during Arts Alive, you should have an easy time counting them as well as their admirers. Free entertainment and refreshments at many venues.
