First Saturday Jerome Art Walk celebrates the Fourth of July weekend in artistic style as galleries and studios open the doors for an evening of summertime enchantment.

From the lively Old Jerome High School to Made in Jerome Pottery at the other end of town, delightful surprises abound in this artist colony high on Cleopatra Hill. Restaurants will be offering delicious fare and the charming hotels and Bed and Breakfasts will be welcoming visitors on this holiday weekend.

Cool evenings at a mile high beckon guests from the steamy Arizona valleys and lovely art is as much a draw as the respite from the heat.

The town shuttle offers free transportation all evening so be prepared to park and let someone else do the driving, if you choose not to walk. With 26 galleries and studios all open in this magical town, one of a kind art is everywhere.

Festivities on July 7th begin at 5 p.m. with doors open until at least 8 p.m.

For more information visit or call Donna @(928) 649-2277. A sampling of what is in store for the art lover follows.
