Astoria Downtown Historic District Association Presents

Art Walk and Cash Mob this Saturday

 

Come downtown on the Second Saturday of every month for the Second Saturday Art Walk and celebrate the Arts in Astoria!  This Saturday’s Art Walk, on October 13, will be preceded by a Cash Mob.

Cash Mob

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) has just announced that this month’s Cash Mob will be on Saturday, October 13, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Mob will gather at the Liberty Theater at 4:45 p.m. then at 5:00 p.m. at the gathering point the Cash Mob destination will be disclosed and the group will walk to it for a quick shopping spree. And if you can’t get there right at 5:00 p.m., don’t worry! A sign will be left at the Liberty and a post will be made to the Astoria Downtown Facebook page announcing the cash mob destination in case you miss the group. Come and support your downtown!

This is one of the monthly cash mobs organized by ADHDA. A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business and buy items from that business. The purpose is to support the local businesses and the overall community. Cash Mob destinations will continue to be chosen by drawing a business card from the cards collected at the monthly ADHDA general meetings. Monthly meetings occur on the first Friday of the month at 8:30 a.m. at Baked Alaska. Come to the next meeting on Friday, November 2 with a business card for a chance to be mobbed next!

Art Walk

Downtown businesses keep their doors open late, provide refreshments and entertainment, and exhibit original works of art or craft. Second Saturday Art Walk venues are located throughout downtown.  The mission of the Art Walk is to promote the downtown core through the support and development of the arts and crafts in Astoria. If you are a downtown business or local artist and wish to participate in the Second Saturday Art Walk event please contact the Art & Culture Committee by emailing us at artwalk@astoriadowntown.com.
