Walnut Grove California First Fridays

What are you doing Friday night? If your dance card is free....head to Walnut Grove and the festivities of First Fridays.

Walnut Grove is located in the heart of the California Delta. It's a place time forgot -- well, maybe not quite. Like so many towns along the River Road -- Highway 160 -- it's a bit of arrested decay. But that's not a bad thing. In this case, it's quite the opposite. Walnut Grove is evolving. And the buildings from days gone by are cool, funky, edgy, chic, rustic, and lots of other descriptive adjectives -- some completely restored, others somewhat tilted and waiting to be loved back to life. The creative side of Walnut Grove is alive and well -- evolving as we speak.

Crazy by Design welcomes three artists: Marc Corren and The Corren Collection: Vintage Rock Art; Steven Brownell Hall will be on hand with his traditional Japanese wood-fired porcelain -- the work is otherworldly. Or perhaps just out of this world; and Locke artist Gochi -- an artist, architect and furniture designer.

Newcomer in Walnut Grove is Noel Design Studio. A lifetime of gathering and collecting the most stunning heirloom beads, metals, and gems are transformed into incredible art -- not just jewelery -- but works of art to beautify your body and world. Exotic vintage textiles from around the world just waiting to find their way into your life. The studio itself is a visual feast.

Live music by Stockton musicians, Smooth, with John Wise and Carla Bomben in the courtyard just below Mel's Mocha on Market Street. The duo has been singing together more than 20 years. Guitar and piano - pop and rock music that you'll love.
