Volkswalk 2018 Walk
Take a walk! Discover art and join in the community fun!
The Lyric’s annual Volkswalk fundraiser is part of Bridge Daze this year on September 15. Join in the fun while supporting the Lyric!
The Volkswalk is a community tradition throughout Europe and the US. It’s a time for friends and neighbors to come together for a healthy hike and discover their surroundings. The Lyric Volkswalk features the awesome public art we have in Virginia. Participants will get a newly released Public Art Map of Virginia developed by the Lyric Center for the Arts and sponsored by the Iron Range Tourism Bureau.
A route is set out for the Volkswalk that is about 3.2 miles, but you can meander with the map to see what’s off the path. It starts at the east end of Chestnut Street at 2:30 and finishes with refreshments at the Lyric Center for the Arts. Ride your bike, run or walk…it’s up to you. The route goes through Olcott Park, which does not allow dogs, but the other paths are open if you want to bring your pet along.
