Commerce and culture meet on Main Street. This event invites artists out of their studios, museums and galleries and into downtown Tigard for an art themed event. Join local artists and businesses for a weekend of art in downtown Tigard. Shop, dine, stroll and explore the arts – street side. Join us for the fourth year of this event and celebrate art in our community.
Established in 2014, the Tigard ArtWalk is sponsored by the Downtown Tigard Alliance, a local nonprofit dedicated to building a vibrant and thriving Downtown. Proceeds from the Tigard Art Walk are used to fund dynamic art for downtown Tigard and related events.

Why Art is Important to Downtown
Research shows that an active arts community helps to revitalize downtowns. According to The American Planning Association, the activities of the arts and culture sector and local economic vitality are connected in many ways. Arts, culture, and creativity can:
- Improve a community’s competitive edge;
- Create a foundation for defining a sense of place;
- Attract new and visiting populations;
- Integrate the visions of community and business leaders; and
- Contribute to the development of a skilled workforce.
