Art Crawl in Downtown Statesville

June 5, 2020 event (CANCELLED)

With the NC Stay at Home Order still in place plus the Governor’s 3 part plan/timeline to reopen the state, Downtown Statesville Development Corporation have made the difficult decision to cancel the June 5, 2020 Spring Art Crawl. This event was originally planned for April 24, 2020 and then rescheduled to June 5 after the initial COVID-19 shut down.

There are just too many unknowns to move forward with the Spring Art Crawl regarding the State’s reopening timelines and the number of people that will be allowed at mass gatherings in each of the phases.

Our hope is to reschedule this event when we have a better sense of when it is appropriate. The Fall Art Crawl is still planned for September 11, 2020. We look forward to celebrating events in Downtown Statesville with you as soon as we are able. Thank you.


The 2020 Downtown Statesville Art Crawls are set for June 5 and September 11 from 5:30–8:30 pm. The Art Crawl will showcase more than 50 artists in  30 different shops, restaurants, and businesses scattered throughout the heart of Downtown Statesville. It is self-guided and you can begin the Crawl at any location. Just look for the sidewalk markers indicating a participating business. A program/map directing attendees to all the locations and listing all participating artists will be available at each location.

The Art Crawl concept is simple – come downtown and walk from location to location, enjoy music, meet the artists and enjoy their work (maybe make a purchase), browse through the shops hosting the artists, and stay late for live music, food, and drinks at one of our many restaurants and bars.

The Art Crawl happens twice a year- Spring and Fall, and is a free event that offers a great time to be downtown, visit and shop local businesses, meet artists, and enjoy their work.

We especially would like to acknowledge our 2020 Art Crawl sponsors – Griffin Insurance and Sheri Bistreich & Associates – Ameriprise Financial Services for their support of this event. Parking during the Art Crawl is available on-street and in 10 public lots throughout the business district. For more information contact Downtown Statesville at 704-878-3436 or email:
