Join the race to visit each of the 14 participating galleries, shops, organizations and restaurants. Simply stop by any one of the participating locations to pick up your official punch card, visit at least 10 of the Trot participants (listed on card), and get your card “punched’ at each location.

Then make a dash for finish line by 8:15 p.m. to St. Luke’s Plaza to be entered to win door prizes; all donated by the Trot participants. It’s sure to be a fun-filled evening viewing many of the new art exhibits and enjoying the toe-tapping live bluegrass band playing. And what could be better than topping it all off by winning prizes?

Join the ‘trotting’ (and potentially running!) art-lovers from 5-8 p.m. for what’s sure to be a yearly tradition for the final Trot of the season in this fun ‘Trotter’s Derby’ event.
