Cupid Crawl: A Walking Downtown Art Tour

Looking for the Valentine's date night that will steal their heart? Arts Council of the Valley (ACV) is excited to announce its second Art Crawl fundraiser event, the Cupid Crawl, on Wednesday, February 14!

Join us for an evening of food, fun, and lots of love as we embark on a romantic journey through downtown Harrisonburg's thriving arts scene. Led by local artist Laura Thompson, ticket holders are encouraged to cozy up with their date (or a drink!) at each of our five tour stops:

  • ACV's Smith House Galleries
  • Wilson Downtown Gallery
  • Shenandoah Joe
  • Hess Financial
  • Larkin Arts

At each stop, guests will enjoy drinks and appetizers while learning from and engaging with Harrisonburg artists on some of the community's newest creative projects. After the tour, feel free to stop by ACV's Court Square Theater for free entry to that evening's film!

The Cupid Crawl kicks off at ACV's Smith House Galleries for a cocktail hour before continuing through downtown Harrisonburg. All proceeds benefit the sustainability of ACV.


  • Student: $40 Ind./$75 Couple

  • Non-Student: $50 Ind./$90 Couple

Date: Wednesday, February 14

Time: Cocktail Hour 5-6 PM, Tour 6-9 PM

We had a uniquely wonderful time last year with the Black Tie Art Crawl! It’s a fun way to experience our cultural and culinary Harrisonburg downtown with friends and neighbors. This year’s Cupid Crawl is on our calendar!
