Art Walk

Are you browsing the event section in the hopes of finding something different and interesting to do? Look no more…The Perry County Historical and Cultural Arts Society and the Crooksville Arts Council present the Perry County Art Walk on Saturday, June 14th from 12-8 p.m. in quaint, historic downtown Somerset, Ohio.

The Perry County Art Walk offers visitors a self guided experience that combines an eclectic mix of visual and live art including a diverse array of jewelry, textiles, live painting, poetry, music, and epicurean delights offered by Ben Carpenter or Master Chef Alphonso Contrisciani.

If spending a day midst friends, food, and art is not enough, take in a bit of history by engaging in a historic walking tour of Somerset offered by noted local historian, David Snider, or treat yourself to a rickshaw ride through Somerset offered by the Coyote Cabbie of Athens, or simply stroll the shops for unique gifts, or take home some locally grown produce.

Best of all, it is FREE! It’s the perfect family friendly outing or will add something special to any date night. We hope to see you there!
