2nd Friday Brunswick! ArtWalk, Music, Theater

Because of ongoing concerns with the Covid-19 Pandemic, the BDA has decided to cancel the June 12th 2nd Friday Brunswick ArtWalk. Our hope is that we will be able to host the July, August, and September events, but the decision will depend on the Governor of Maine’s health and safety declarations at that time.

2nd Friday Brunswick is as an inclusive series of events that encompasses ArtWalk, while also showcasing local shops, restaurants, and artistic talent from a variety of mediums. This event is intended to give residents and visitors a unique opportunity to engage with the arts all within walking distance of Maine Street. Located within Brunswick’s downtown district: Pleasant Street to Mill Street, and along Maine Street, ending at the Fort Andross Mill Complex.

2020 dates: June 12, (cancelled), July 10, August 14, and September 11.


Interested in participating in 2nd Friday Brunswick? Registration will open in March.  Questions? Call 729-4439 or email
Downtown businesses and organizations interested in becoming a 2nd Friday Brunswick venue and hosting an artist can register by emailing Friday Brunswick schedule of activities, map, artist’s openings, and venues will be published in The Cryer newspaper each month. On-street parking and municipal public parking lots are free.
