|ArtWalk San Diego @NTC Liberty Station • August 24 & 25, 2013|
Announcing our new name, new dates, and a new home!
The event formerly known as ArtWalk on the Bay has a new name, new dates and a new home! We are thrilled to announce that in August 2013, we will be offering the 8th Annual Festival at Ingram Plaza at NTC Liberty Station. It's a gorgeous, flat, grassy park just a stone's throw from the bay.
In this new location, EVERY artist will have a corner space!
The historic home of San Diego's Naval Training Center has been transformed in recent years—it has now become a creative hub for all things artistic in San Diego. Galleries,museums and artist studios are complemented by an array of dining options in this scenic venue. In late spring of 2013, Stone Brewing's new World Bistro will open…adding another layer of dining options to the scene. The venue also offers plenty of FREE PARKING for both artists and attendees.
The management team at NTC has been extremely enthusiastic about our partnership. We look forward to ArtWalk San Diego @NTC Liberty Station, so mark your calendar now.

About NTC at Liberty Station
NTC has been the setting for several movies including Top Gun, Battle Cry, Here Comes the Navy, and Abbott and Costello's film In the Navy (the song "We're in the Navy Now" from this movie became the official training tune of NTC). The golf course at the northern end was once managed by the famous golfer Sam Snead, during his stint in the Navy.
The base was closed by the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) commission in 1993, and turned over to the city of San Diego for redevelopment and historical preservation. It is now the site of Liberty Station, a mixed-use community, and San Diego's flagship arts and culture district, with 28 acres of beautifully renovated Spanish Revival architecture.
ArtWalk is proud to celebrate the history of the U.S. Navy in San Diego, and the vital role that the Naval Training Center has played, and NTC at Liberty Station continues to play, in our city.
