WHY LIVE IN WALNUT CREEK
FUN LOCAL EVENTS
Walnut Creek Downtown is presenting a month-long celebration of performing, visual, cultural and culinary arts in its "arts around August." Experience Movies under th Stars, PAINT the downTOWN plein air art festival, public art walking tours, Moveable Feast, treasure hunts and more.
I find the Moveable Feast to be quite intriguing! Their website describes it this way:
"Immerse yourself in an upscale, progressive food and beverage tour featuring three of Walnut Creek's best restaurants each Wednesday. The tour includes gourmet bites with beverage pairings and presentations by the chefs, all interspersed with interesting public art stops along the way that are guided by Bedford Gallery docents. Advance tickets required."
Check out the website for more details.
I love Walnut Creek!
PAINT the downTOWN
Plein Air At Festival
Valley Art Gallery will hold a plein air painting event in downtown Walnut Creek on Friday and Saturday, August 27 and 28, 2021. A number of gallery artists will be painting the landmarks and street scenes on Broadway Plaza and in the Main and Locust Street areas at various times during those days.
On Sunday, August 29, from 11 am to 4 pm, the gallery artists will show their plein air work on the plaza in front of the Lesher Center on Civic Drive and Locust Street. The public is invited to come and enjoy the show and vote for their favorite painting.
The Walnut Creek Farmers’ Market is a thriving and wonderful community gathering place with friendly farmers and artisan purveyors offering an array of locally sourced food. A perfect place to meet a friend for coffee or to start the day off with your family, you’ll find many of your grocery needs at your fingertips, including breads, cheese, dips, honey, jams, meats and olive oil. Enjoy live music from local musicians while you shop the bustling market.
We are proud to work with farmers and artisan vendors who provide some of the finest and freshest produce each week. The farmers and vendors are happy to answer any questions you may have about their growing practices or how they make their products, strike up a conversation with them!
Nestled on Locust Street between Cole and Lacassie St, the market’s central location makes it accessible to everyone whether you’re walking, biking, driving or riding public transit. We’re a short walk from BART. We look forward to seeing you at the market.
