You never know what will pop up or who you’ll see at Gallery Walk! For months May-Oct we will close Elliot Street and Harmony Lot to traffic and we can all enjoy a block party that is ALL about art & community. For Nov & Dec it’s all about the galleries and the stellar exhibits they have planned for you! No raindate this year- Gallery Walk is rain or shine.

Brattleboro – America’s Most Storied Small Town!
From ancient Abenaki petroglyphs and the first known African American poet Lucy Terry Prince, to being home to Nobel Laureates like Rudyard Kipling, who wrote The Jungle Books here, and giant book manufacturers that produced the first American editions of Harry Potter – Brattleboro’s history is a lot bigger than its size.
Here’s how you can learn more:
At Gallery Walk: Meet 5:30 pm in front of Brattleboro Museum & Art Center for a short tour that hits the high points of Brattleboro’s unique history led by charming guides from Brattleboro Words Trail and Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary. The tour lasts about 40 minutes and covers .5 mile (.8 km). Free, but donations accepted and benefit both organizations.
Rich Earth Institute bathrooms available on Elliot Street. (Most of our galleries also offer restrooms for folks viewing the exhibits).
Handicapped Parking- There will parking available on the top of the parking garage and on the WEST side of Main Street, closest to Elliot Street. For additional assistance in this regard, please feel free to email email@example.com
