Second Saturday History Andy and Yvette Benavides, owners of the 1906 complex, founded the Second Saturday Artwalk in 1995. It was inspired by their efforts initiated around the First Friday Artwalk. There were enough artists and footprint to host 2 monthly arts events. Today in 2018 they remain committed, are proud of what they do, and have been complimented with additional artists and studios that collectively work together as a community to promote their mission. The community is the strength of Second Saturday.
What is Second Saturday? Second Saturday is a FREE family friendly monthly Artwalk event occurring every second Saturday of every month in Southtown’s Lone Star/ Collins Garden neighborhoods. You’ll find the evening filled with local art, vendors, food trucks, live music and dj’s. Visit one of the area breweries or grab a bite at one of the local restaurants and head out to check out the shows and buy some art. This artwalk has something for everyone.
Where to see all the events? The best place to see all that is happening on Second Saturday is on FB @Southtownarts or on Instagram @southtownsatx. We do our best to get everything listed in one place.
Parking: Street parking is available throughout the neighborhood and behind Freight Gallery & Studios on Cassiano Street.
