Artists Alley @ Midtown is an artist-driven farmers market that transforms Midtown Lane in Oldtown Salinas into a local artists’ pop-up shop. Hosting over 20 artists from our community, we are cultivating a space for professional and emerging artists to present and sell their creative works while networking with other artists.

We also provide live music and an open stage where musicians, spoken word, dance, karaoke, etc. take place. In Addition, we provide a variety of youth activities, offering access to our studio space and all our materials for FREE. Artists Alley is a FREE community event taking place every First Friday of the month from 5pm to 9pm. Artists Alley is also FREE to all Artist and Artisan participants

Artists Ink's Open Stage

Featured Artists + Karaoke 

Embark upon a brand-new Open Stage night facilitated at Artists Ink every first Friday during Artists Alley.


The Open Stage is available to everyone in the community, and you have a choice to showcase an original piece of work, whether it is a song, poem/spoken word, dance, monolog, or you can do a little bit of karaoke. It’s all up to you. This platform is open to everyone in the community, especially youth, as we take pride in offering a place where friends and family can come together to have a good time. Every month we also have a featured artist showcasing their work. Who knows, maybe you could be our next featured artist?


Our Open Stage at Artists Ink begins at 6pm, with our Feature Artists taking the stage at 7pm.


Artist Alley @ Midtown is an artist market that occurs every First Friday of the month. If you’re an artists, artisan, band, etc, who is interested in being a part of a future Artist Alley.
