One special Friday evening each month, the streets of Historic Downtown Pensacola come alive for Gallery Night.
Galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and bars open their doors to the night air as visitors and locals flood the streets to enjoy music, art and cuisine. Café tables set out on brick sidewalks are the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or cocktail, as the sounds of live music and a spirited crowd fill the air. Families linger in the downtown parks, playing around the beautiful fountains and historic oaks.
It’s the perfect chance to get an inside look at Pensacola’s lively downtown sector and thriving art scene. Streets close to traffic at 5 pm, but there is ample parking available on side streets. The party officially wraps up at 10pm, but most restaurants, bars, and local businesses extend their hours to promote the excitement of late night crowds.
The mission of Gallery Night Pensacola is an engaging cultural event that takes the “Arts to the Streets” where visitors can connect with the unique Culture of Pensacola.
Through this non-profit organization, individual artists will have the opportunity to showcase their talent, area arts organizations will host public performances and demonstrations, downtown businesses will enhance the downtown experience and other community non-profits will add to the Gallery Night experience.
