District Wide Events

Third Friday Gallery Walk

It’s all happening on Harrison Street!  The Oak Park Arts District galleries are open for special events from 6:00 – 10:00pm every Third Friday of the month.  Enjoy dinner in the district and stroll the galleries taking in the artwork of the gallery owners and their guest artists.

Shop for fine art or one of a kind gifts at Gallery Pink, Flavor City Studios, Dancing Krow Studio, Art Gecko and Harrison Works, all located between Lombard & Austin.  Many of our unique boutiques keep late hours on Third Friday evenings as well.

If you’re looking to create your own work of art, stop in to Bead in Hand or Creative Changes Studio for a scheduled workshop.

For neighborhood ambiance, you can count on the Eastgate Cafe, the Buzz Cafe and Trattoria 225.  Enjoy a drink and live music most Fridays at the Eastgate Cafe and the Buzz Cafe.
