Every Year at the BereArtday Artwalk is More than People Expect

1 May

BereArtday is two art shows in one. The Berea Arts Fest Artwalk and the Berea Fine Arts Club Mayshow. Both are located on the triangle in downtown Berea, May 20, 2017. Every year some 40 artists on the triangle and another 12 artists take up locations in storefront locations around downtown Berea.

Guests set off to see great art but end up with much more then they expected.  Walking Berea’s historic downtown and meeting artists is just the start. Soon guests realize they meet shop owners, neighbors and other enthusiasts like themselves.  Before they know it, guests end up with a sweet treat from Dicks or Rocket Cow from the Cornerstone.  Don’t know what we’re talking about?  you will, when you come to the BereArtday, May 20, 2017.  10am-5pm.  Free and open to all.  See you there.
