Art After Dark


Downtown SLO is alive with new art exhibits, music, and community! Visit dozens of galleries and non-traditional exhibit spaces. It's SLO's favorite night of the month to celebrate art for free! Art After Dark runs from 6pm to 9pm.

On a typical Art After Dark, approximately 30 venues including galleries, restaurants, salons and boutiques spotlight the best of SLO local artists. 

When does it happen?

In downtown City of SLO: first Friday of every month.

In Paso Robles: first Saturday of every month except December. 

Morro Bay Art Walk: second Friday of every month.

Check local listings to confirm dates, times, holidays and weather permitting.

Art After Dark in downtown SLO is sponsored in part by a grant from the City of San Luis Obispo.
