About this event

ALL CALL for PanAfrican Marketplace in Downtown Pomona


Join in celebrating the Alliance Community Cultural Center and supporting Black Businesses in our area. Pomona's 2nd Saturday Artwalk is one of the largest and oldest Artwalks in the nation and is held in the historic Pomona Arts Colony. Artwalk started nearly 28 years ago with Artists opening their lofts and galleries opening their doors to artist lovers from all over the globe. Over the years, it has become the "Place To Be" with the inclusion of additional retail, eateries, and entertainment venues in the Pomona Arts Colony.

Artwalk occurs rain or shine every 2nd Saturday and pre-Covid saw thousands of people enjoying live performances, gallery visits, street art, and small business pop-ups all throughout the 10 blocks

We're safely gathering and enjoying a great Summer evening of community in Downtown Pomona; in front of our NEW space and putting the spotlight on inspiring Black creators, educators, designers, musicians, artists, and more.
