For two glorious days during the summer months, the Art Constitutional joins the St. Johns Farmers Market to activate the St. Johns neighborhood by bringing together art, music, and food. The Art Constitutional offers a distinct combination of artworks, demonstrations, hands-on art making, and performances. Our goal is to introduce new and upcoming artists, expand awareness of the existing St. Johns art community, provide access to musical and cultural performances, and compliment the diverse businesses in our vibrant neighborhood. Learn more about the fun we had in June and September of last year!

This year, the Art Constitutional will take place on Saturdays June 3rd and September 9th from 9am-2pm in the US Bank parking lot along N. Lombard in downtown St. Johns.
