Featuring 60 Local Artists and a Family Friendly Comedy Crawl


On Friday, December 16th, from 5–9 pm, Gallery Night Pensacola’s theme is “Ugly Sweater Night!” Join us and share in the holiday festivities by rocking your ugliest sweater!

Gallery Night is an all-ages, community, arts, and culture event on the third Friday of each month, from 5 – 9 pm. Our unique monthly themes set the tone for each event’s art, performers, musical performance stages, and activities that are sure to please. Our monthly events are made possible by community partner, Publix.

This month, we welcome a new feature to this holiday event, a family-friendly “Ugly Sweater Comedy Crawl!” Join local comedians-Andy Honaker, Gale Fluker aka Mz. Undastood, Lamar Defoe, Savanna Zehe, Zach Van Getsel, and organizer Andrew Ferrara of Yikes! Comedy, for an evening of laughs, as they lead you up Palafox Street to the Garden Street Main Stage. Join us at the first stop – The 5 Barrel at 6 pm; then see where you end up in between!

Is it time to start, or finish, your holiday shopping? Our extensive art zones, sponsored by T-Mobile, host nearly 60 local artisans for this month’s holiday-style market! Visit their open-air tents on the street to find those one-of-a-kind gifts for your family and loved ones.

Gallery Night’s December Featured Artist is Cora Lynch. You may recognize her as Cora the Crocheting Cow! Meet Cora, see her modern crocheted and knitted clothing, and accessories, demonstrating her love for creating new, one-of-a-kind pieces.
