On October 12, 2013, enjoy a cool evening filled with original art works and music — plus a Fun Finder Mobile Kid Zone sponsored by Credit Union West — as you stroll Central Avenue for the 12th installment of the Sunnyslope Art Walk. More than 130 artists will show and sell their original work ranging from fine art painting and ceramics to jewelry and fiber wearables.
Named the Best of Phoenix Best Arts Festival by Phoenix New Times in 2012, the event runs from 5 to 9 p.m. along the quarter-mile stretch of Central Avenue from Dunlap Avenue to the canal.
Sunnyslope Art Walk also features live local music along the route including Sunnyslope's own Refugees from the '60s. Other favorites are Andy Naylor, Art Stream, Ben Anderson, Bourbon Myst, Central Divides, JC & the Jukers, Mick Farrell, and Paris James, with music coordinated by Evans Frazier and Tone Town Guitars.
Fun Finder Mobile Kid Zone sponsored by Credit Union West will offer an indoor space where kids will enjoy free games and crafts. Vendors will display family-friendly products, and raffles will award family-oriented prizes. Look for Fun Finder Mobile Kid Zone sponsored by Credit Union West inside the MarketPlace at Central at Central and Dunlap avenues, between Grinders Coffee Company and Salvadoreño No. 3 in Phoenix.
A variety of restaurants and fast-food providers along the route will offer food and drink for purchase. Parking is available at the MarketPlace at Central, 115 E. Dunlap Ave.; Sunnyslope High School, 35 W. Dunlap Ave.; and John C. Lincoln North Mountain's Cowden Center, 9202 N. Second St.
In its sixth year, the free semiannual event occurs on the second Saturday in April and October. The presenting sponsor is John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital with Empire Power Systems and American Valet. Check out the event at sunnyslopecommunity.org.
