Participating art galleries will greet guests on the third Thursday in June from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in an open-house format and offer delights for your eyes, ears, and taste buds. Many of the galleries will have the artists present to introduce their works.

As a wonderful and exciting wrap up to the evening, art lovers will get a chance to win some fabulous art donated by the participating galleries. Each gallery that you visit during the evening earns you an entry into the prize drawing for that gallery. Additional tickets are earned with each purchase that you make. The tickets will then be drawn at the Afterglow Party from 9:15 to 10:00 p.m. on the Rose Garden Veranda at Stafford's Perry Hotel. Thousands of dollars worth of art is given away each year.

Walking maps are free and will be available at the Petoskey Downtown Office, the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the participating galleries. So, get a babysitter, grab your friends, and stroll around Downtown Petoskey and soak up the cultured atmosphere.
