Saturday, October 18 at 6 pm – 9 pm: Downtown Covington comes to life! Presented by the St. Tammany Art Association (STAA), along with the sponsorship and support of local businesses, galleries and restaurants: The Spring for Art and Fall for Art annual events draw some 4,000 visitors to the historic St. John district each season. New work by dozens of artists from around the Southeast Region are showcased. The free event includes live music at various outdoor and indoor locations, gallery openings, art demonstrations, outdoor movie screening, first-rate boutique shopping, and fine dining throughout Downtown Covington.
Visitors enjoy live performances by local and nationally-renowned musicians, all over the downtown area. Covington’s many restaurants will be open for business. The festivities are extensive, and to make sure that the crowds move from one end of the map to another, the City of Covington is providing a tram to make traveling easier. Be sure to keep a printed brochure on hand, available at any participating venue! Programs with locations and contact information for each participating shop are available at STAA and at your favorite locations around Covington.
