The fun continues after the galleries close with ArtWalk After Hours. End your evening at the Farmers Market Pavilion, and dance into the weekend with a live performance by Eugene’s own SoulStruck.

With high energy funk, rock and soul, SoulStruck makes it hard to not move. The core group has been together for over a decade. They are a tight-knit set of seasoned professionals who have performed at countless venues, clubs, wineries, and festivals across the Northwest and beyond, often sharing stages with well-known artists, and always with the intent to groove.
