Jerome AZ (April 26, 2019) – Another great spring evening is in store for locals and visitors in this mile high mountain town. First Saturday Jerome Art Walk on May 4th will be a party filled with art, music, refreshments and great conversation at the many amazing galleries and studios. A free shuttle will whisk you from The Old Jerome High School to Made in Jerome Pottery and everywhere in between. Walking the inviting streets is another easy option for art lovers. Jerome First Saturday Art Walk has become the best Saturday activity in the Verde Valley… at least according to many art lovers who are slowly savoring each section of this thriving art community. There is so much to see that it is impossible to visit everything in one walk.
