Nanaimo Artwalk 2024
Downtown Nanaimo & Old City Quarter
Saturday November 23 ​(10 am – 4pm)
Sunday November 24th (Noon – 4pm)




We are excited to announce that Nanaimo Artwalk, the festival’s 26th-anniversary event, will take place on November 23 and 24, 2024, and feature more than 60 artists.

Nanaimo Artwalk is a unique opportunity for art creatives to showcase their work in the heart of the city. Geographically located in the downtown area, primarily along Chapel and Commercial Street to Victoria Crescent and the Old City Quarter, bordered by Fitzwilliam Street to the north, Wesley Street to the west, and Albert Street to the south, this event offers a prestigious platform for your art.

As in the past, each artist must arrange their venue, except for St. Andrews United Church and the Music Conservatory, where the Arts Council assigns space. Artists who exhibited in these locations last year have priority this year. As of July 1, NAC will allocate any additional space on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration for the 2024 Nanaimo Artwalk is now open!

Nanaimo Arts Council acknowledges with gratitude and respect that we are on the unceded traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw, Snaw-naw-as, and Szt’uminus First Nations. Haych qa Siem.
