Celebrate the arts in Downtown Muncie every First Thursday! Meet your friends downtown for the monthly art walk, scheduled this month for January 6, from 5 to 8 pm.
First Thursday gallery walk is a monthly event. All the downtown art galleries simultaneously launch their monthly exhibits with extended hours on the first Thursday evenings of every month. Stroll the streets, meet the artists, enjoy live music and find free refreshments at nearly every stop.
Most of our specialty shops downtown keep extended hours during First Thursday, and all our restaurants and pubs will be open late and ready to serve you. So grab your friends, head downtown, and join the hundreds celebrating local arts and culture in Muncie's historic downtown district!
Downtown is part of an arts and cultural district, recognized in 2009 by the City of Muncie. A committee of the Muncie Arts and Culture Council is currently seeking state designation for the district. The group is also pursuing the development of a Cultural Trail, similar to the one currently being developed in Indianapolis, that ties the districts together via the Cardinal Greenway.
