The Railway City has enjoyed the Arts Crawl for the past 7 years, and it’s become an exciting tradition for creative minds!
Do you get your passport ready every year and plot out your route? Do you think you're a seasoned Crawler?
This year we are shaking things up a bit with many added experiences. To help you out, we bring you 5 things you may not know about #ArtsCrawl2020!
1. railway city arts crawl beverage market
Attention legal age drinkers! At this years' Crawl, The Horton Market will be host to a Beverage Market consisting of craft beers and spirits and presented by Platform Event Co. This is a great chance to taste-test local and regional brewery creations at the Crawl and experience its artistry!
2. arts crawl official experiences

3. taste your art
St. Thomas’ chefs are artists too! Food masterpieces will be available throughout the entirety of the crawl. Our food artists include:
Quai Du Vin Estate Winery + Wildflowers Farm + Welsh Baker (at Railway City Tourism)
Elgin Harvest + Relish! (at Railway City Brewing)
4. So many local artists!
Whether you love a specific artist's work or you’re looking to become a fan of a new artist, the Arts Crawl will display the works of over 100 different creators! Just because our artists grow in number doesn't mean it has to be harder to see them all - we still cap it at 15 venues + 10 experiences.
5. after dark: Arts Crawl Carnival
You read correctly! This year the Arts Crawl will host the After Dark: Arts Crawl Carnival. This is a very exciting new feature of the Crawl, and will take place on February 29, at Railway City Brewing featuring magic from Keith Brown, a nacho bar from Elgin Harvest, music from Groove Station, and much more. See you there!
