From March through December, our city’s thriving arts community comes together to showcase their work on the first Thursday of each month 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Whether you’re a casual observer or a serious art buyer, you’ll find something to pique your interest among the work of over 30 local artists. Enjoy local musicians throughout the galleries and stores. First Thursday ArtWalk takes place in downtown Joplin. Just park your car and stroll down Main Street; signs on the sidewalks will point you to the galleries and business pop-ups that are open for this event.
