Unveil May with Season’s 1st Gallery Walk: A Vibrant Celebration of Art and Community

May 3 @ 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM

May Gallery Walk

Downtown Brattleboro’s Gallery Walk returns on May 3rd, and you won’t want to miss it! Nothing combines Art + Community like Gallery Walk, which is right in downtown’s heart.

This season, Gallery Walk will run from May through December, with a few things to note. Every first Friday from 5-9 pm, we hope you’ll swing down to Downtown Brattleboro for galleries, live music, food trucks, Brattleboro Flea, and interactive art stations. 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.

DBA (Downtown Brattleboro Alliance) has a new office! You can find us at 57 Elliot Street, the old Artrageous location. DBA is tasked with keeping downtown VIBRANT through programs like Gallery Walk, The Bloom Program, and more. Visit us at or stop in and say hello—we can’t wait to meet you! Every month at Gallery Walk, we partner with BDCC for the Welcome Wagon at our new office, a mixer for new VT residents with light refreshments and mingling.

May’s Music: Katie Von Schleicher—Brooklyn-based songwriter Katie von Schleicher layers lush instrumentation and wry lyrics on her new album, A Little Touch of Schleicher in the Night.

“Exquisitely melancholy chamber pop can feel like a lost art these days. Not when Katie’s in the house.” – Rolling Stone

Local favorites Beetsblog open the concert.

The Brattleboro Flea is a collaborative marketplace of artists, makers, and sellers in the Brattleboro area.
