Take time to stroll through 11th annual LeucadiART Walk on Aug. 30


Celebrate the “Art and Soul” of Encinitas as Leucadia comes alive at the 11th Annual LeucadiART Walk on Aug. 30.

“Whether you’re a longtime Leucadian or a regional visitor, you’ll enjoy perusing the esteemed collection of local artists at LeucadiART Walk. Art and eclecticism have always been hallmarks of Leucadia,” says Carris Rhodes, executive director of Leucadia 101 Main Street.

“The 2015 LeucadiArt Walk celebrates our community’s artistic history while offering a diverse sampling of its present talent. The event is shaping up to be an engaging day of arts, music and fun experiences.”

Enjoy live music at six locations along North Coast Highway 101, including acts such as the New Orleans second line-inspired Euphoria Brass Band, the local favorite Jenk’s Band, Adrienne Nims and Cordelia Degher!

Enjoy a crisp San Diego craft beer and live tunes at the the California Coast Credit Union Beer Garden, at Noni Salon Boutique Spa at 704 N. Coast Highway. The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing Co. will be pouring locally brewed, summer-ready craft beer from 1-7 p.m. Join the after-party when the art walk ends at 5 p.m.

Attendees will have the chance to get up close and personal with mural painting at its best. Local artist Casey O’Connell will be painting a brand-new mural on the giant wall of Coffee Coffee at 970 N. Coast Highway. O’Connell is a talented muralist based in Leucadia who travels the U.S. painting commissioned murals.

Avoid traffic by parking at Encinitas City Hall (505 S. Vulcan Ave.) and jumping on the Magic Trolley Bus leaving every 15 minutes. Tired of walking? Feel free to pick the bus up at marked locations along Highway 101 for a free ride.
