Oceanside Friends of the Arts gives back to the Oceanside community through cultural events including First Friday Art Walk and Artist Alley Oceanside.

We are a non-profit organization, relying on dedicated volunteers.

Friday June 7th, the Art Walk will be in Artist Alley in Oceanside. 5-9pm.

Join First Friday Art Walk by supporting our vibrant art community showcasing pop-up art galleries, custom jewelry, dance performances, live music and poetry.

We are working hard to provide you the best experience possible. Artist Alley just keeps getting better and better with our new improvements.
