A Two-day Extravaganza with Hundreds of Artists

On Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., over 100 artists from around the country will display their work at the Coronado Ferry Landing, ranging from painting and photography to pottery, wood, glass and jewelry. Admission is free. Musical entertainment, interactive art activities and a free shuttle bus to other Coronado sites will be available both days. The Coronado Art Walk, now in its sixth year, is a major fundraiser for the Coronado Historical Association.

The Coronado Ferry Landing on San Diego Bay is a picture-perfect setting for the two-day art and music celebration. The Rad Hatter and other interactive art stations will please the little ones. Musical entertainment is an important facet of the outdoor event every year, and a variety of popular groups like the Bill Magee Blues Band and the Bayou Brothers will perform on the main stage over the two days. To make a day of it, the Ferry Landing provides a variety of dining opportunities; good choices are available on-site for every appetite and budget.

Visitors will find ample parking available but for anyone wishing to forgo their cars for the day, San Diego Harbor Excursion will be ferrying pedestrians and bicyclists across the bay. A free shuttle bus will take visitors down Orange Avenue to other shopping and dining spots, the beach or the Hotel Del Coronado for additional sight-seeing.

For further information about this year’s big event, call the Coronado Visitor Center, (619) 437-8788 or log onto www.coronadovisitorcenter.com or www.coronadohistory.org .
