The SoNo Arts Festival


SoNo Arts Festival is excited to introduce their first-ever storefront “festival”. The safe space event will take place in available retail properties along Washington Street, part of AGW SoNo Partners’ newly acquired portfolio. Juried artists will house, display, and sell their works inside these unique retail and restaurant spaces. The event is being supported by OnWashginton, AGW’s marketing arm for Washington Street Historic District.

This year’s festival is sponsored by:
  • OnWashington
  • Norwalk
  • jethog
  • Factory Underground

2020 SoNo Arts Festival turns Washington Street into a Gallery Style Art Walk for October! In the midst of Cancellation Culture, we are very pleased to announce an incredible opportunity for Artists to exhibit. We have joined forces with owners of the SoNo business district to rejuvenate the retail and restaurant scene on historic Washington Street.

SoNo Puppet Parade

The Giant Puppet Parade sponsored by The Sono Collection, is a feature of the SoNo Arts Festival and is Directed by Cara Christofor and created by volunteers for months, culminating in an event open to the public to join as participant or spectator – a magnificent parade that marches through the Arts Festival in South Norwalk in a blaze of color, music and creativity.This year the parade will be lead by the Funky Dawgs Brass Band who will bring even more energy to the already vibrant streets of Sono. Anyone who wishes to march in the parade is invited to meet in the children's area at 1pm on Sunday to choose their puppet to march with!

We can't do it with out your help!

Artists and Patrons are visiting Norwalk from all over the country this weekend. Let's make them all feel Welcome and excited about Norwalk and the Artistic spirit here!
