For over 40 years, Saugatuck/Douglas has hosted its annual Fall Gallery Stroll, a highly anticipated two-day art event appreciated by visitors and locals alike. This years’ stroll is slated for Saturday, October 9 and Sunday, October 10 from 12-5pm each day.
Wander through dozens of galleries and artists’ studios along the picturesque streets of downtown Saugatuck and Douglas. The 2 communities make for a charming backdrop (which typically includes the brilliant fall colors), as you stroll leisurely from one unique gallery to the next. Chat with the artists, watch live demos, enjoy live music, and between gallery visits, sample delicious local bites and refreshments all while expanding your artistic tastes.
A tradition since 1977, the Fall Gallery Stroll began with a small core group of Saugatuck/Douglas art galleries. Since then, the event has grown and evolved, becoming an Art Coast tradition. Now, with more than 20 galleries and artist studios participating each year, you’ll find a wide range of artwork from local, regional, and national artists spanning mediums that range from contemporary paintings to found material sculptures, to hand blown glass and pottery.
Visit us along the Art Coast of Michigan and explore why our long-established Fall Gallery Stroll is known for being the premier arts weekend of the year. The event is free and open to the public.
