Leavenworth Main Street hosts several events throughout the year encouraging people to enjoy our historic downtown.
2020 ART WALK Shawnee Street– (Click the link to download the map) We have curated a variety of art found up and down Shawnee Street. Our map will allow you to explore Shawnee’s Art Walk and learn about the history behind some of the more prominent pieces. (From the comfort of your own home!) And, when some of the social distancing guidelines are lifted, come down and “Walk the Walk” downtown Leavenworth! *This doesn’t represent all of the wonderful murals downtown, but it gets you started!
