Holiday Art Walk 2023

The Arts Council of SWLA is hosting the annual Holiday Art Walk, on November 25 from 11 AM to 3 PM in conjunction with the City of Lake Charles’ Light Up the Lake celebration. Holiday Art Walk 2023 will take place at the Lake Charles Event Center (formerly known as the Civic Center) on Gill Street, and will be closed to vehicle traffic for a full-fledged open air art market.

Food vendors may not sell alcoholic beverages of any kind. Electrical access will not be available, so all food vendors will need an independent power source. Extension cords and other necessary equipment are also the vendor’s responsibility. Set-up may begin after street closure at 9 AM, with sales beginning at 11 AM. While participants eat at their own risk, vendors are responsible for upholding all state and regional codes and health regulations.

Extensive marketing for this event includes print advertisements, television promotions, on-site maps, and creative online strategies. To cover these costs, the fee is $50 per vendor space. Email hi-res images of your food, logo, and/or promotional materials for various marketing campaigns to There is no guarantee that your photo will be used. We will coordinate on your exact location as we get closer to this event. By signing this registration, you agree to pay the $50 fee. Rain or shine – no refunds. 

Spaces are limited this year. Confirmed vendors (those that have submitted application and fee) will be assigned to best-possible location. Confirmed Vendors will be sent maps, setup info, etc. in the weeks leading up to the event.
