Vallejo Art Walk
Old Town Vallejo
Vallejo Art Walk is a monthly occurrence in the Downtown Vallejo Arts District. It is held on the second Friday of each month from 6 - 10pm rain or shine. It's not an official event but rather a bunch of artists and artisans that open and set up on the same night to show off their talents. Most locations are in the central core of the downtown and very walkable but a few are spread out a few blocks in each direction.
