Downtown Issaquah to host Art Walk and Music Stroll events starting July 3

The Art Walk and Music Stroll will be held on the first Saturday of each month this Summer.

Downtown Issaquah’s Art Walk and Music Stroll returns this Saturday, July 3 in conjunction with the Artisan Market which will be front and center at the Piazza at 172 Front St N.

The Artisan Market will occur every Saturday from 4pm to 8pm through September, while the Art Walk and Music Stroll will occur only on the first Saturday of the month during the same hours.

“Plan to spend the full four hours and come back for more, because this will be an art

connoisseur’s and shopper’s heaven,” said Christina Bruning, president of the Downtown

Issaquah Association. “Not to mention the retail shopping and food favorites along the way.”

This Saturday’s event will include a variety of music performances by musicians and groups such as The Porch Pals, who have have entertained West Market Kirkland residents

every Friday night from their porch since the pandemic began, Ollella, a live-looping cellist and vocalist Ellie Barber, and the Tiger Mountain Drummers who perform Afrocuban rhythms.

Local artists will also have their art featured on the windows of local businesses in the area, including artists such as Antoaneta Georgieva, Gail Baker and Lisa Rasmussen.

Pedestrian Park will feature the Issaquah Alps Mosaic Project with mosaic artist Cheryl Smith on Saturday, July 3rd from 3pm-7pm. Fols are welcome to participate in a recycled glass laying event to create the Issaquah Alps as a mosaic.

The mosaic will be displayed as public art in perpetuity next to the original Trail House on the Rainier Trail. All ages and abilities are welcome to attend and contribute to this special piece of community art, celebrating over 40 years of land conservation in the Issaquah Alps.
